Max Resolution For SLS Polyamide STL file

Hi there,

what is the highest recommended resolution when uploading a STL file for printing in SLS Polyamide? would it be a problem if I set the resolution to maximum?

kind regards,

Hi Jordan,

Thanks a lot for the question.

There is no certain limit regarding the resolution of the 3D model, however if it is too high (the number of triangles is too big for the system to process it properly) it may be mishandled by the system. A file with a resolution that is too high will make your file too large and sometimes impossible for us to handle. It might also contain an extreme level of detail that 3D printers simply cannot print anyway.

Please have a look at this article on our helpcenter regarding this topic.
