    Went with 65 mm, the print took 23h 49min with 10% infill, 0.1 m layer height and 6 top & bottom layers. Printed beautifully too! Starting on the top now. Nice touch with the three different depths for the optional door panel. Once the whole print is done I'll take pics and upload to Thingiverse :)

    I was about to ask your print speed if it took 23 hours but then I remembered that at .2 layer and 60mm/sec (80 on infill) the print was like 10-11hours for me. When designing I try and keep the max print time for those settings to be that I can start it around 9-10pm and it will be done in the morning.

    I got it set a bit slower, 40/60 mm. Just printed the top, took 19h 31min. I'll try ramping up the speed to 60/80, it should work fine. I generally don't worry so much about print time, I just make sure the print starts off OK and then leave it until done.

    Do you generally design with 0.2 in mind?

    yes as that's the standard layer height most people print in. It's generally much quicker to clean up a print, especially one that's flat like the building part of the entrance then to print at a higher resolution. Was probably 30min of sanding to smooth things out.

    I'd probably only design for finer then .2 if I was making something with a steep slope or lots of spheres where having the extra layers will make the intended shape more accurate. That doesn't mean I don't print at .15 or .1 (though my machine can go down to .06 on a .4mm end) I did for the interior escalators section just because cleaning up would be a bit of a pain due to the detail but I still designed it to print well at .2.

    I also design with .4mm nozzle too and try to keep thin parts to a multiple of that.
