    So lately I have been using a new profile, from 3D printed tabletop. Aimed at making minis large and small and terrain pieces in Cura4. and so far they are great
    Mini small (layer height 0.08mm)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Larger or terrain settings (layer height 0.15mm)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    While these prints are fantastic. I want to make them better. I heard from where I got to profile that there are “magic numbers” for the layer height. I was wondering if anyone knew them.

    Nah, whatever works for you is what you use.
    Layer height is not the core of resolution either, nozzle diameter matters and for best results (without further tweaking) you want to keep the layer height within about 30-70% of the nozzle diameter (in mm)
    This is why 0.2 is the default for the 0.4 nozzle...

    and if you really want superior details at tiny sizes, go with a resin printer (not FDM)
