Material

This is where you can choose the different materials available at Z3D to print with, each come with advantages that differ from one another.


Layer Thickness

FDM works by depositing plastic one layer at a time. The layer thickness indicates how much detail you want to be shown on your model.

It's quite simple, the layer thickness directly affects how smooth your model will end up looking as well as how refined the small details are retained. Check out the image below that shows how different resolutions smoothen out a straight line and a curve.

Filling

When 3D printing your model, void areas are filled with plastic material that make up the integrity of the final result. How much filling directly affects the rigidity of your model, but also affects the cost to make.
