Treefrog Layer Height Comparison

Treefrog Layer Height Comparison

This was an interesting print. It was helpful not only for testing and calibration, but also because it shows the difference in print quality when using different layer heights. The one printed at .34mm has visible layers and misses tiny details like the frog’s nostrils. The one printed at .05mm looks and feels smooth and shows even the tiniest of details.

Of course, there’s a trade-off between quality and print speed. The print times were as follows:

0.34mm layer height: 28 min
0.27mm layer height: 39 min
0.10mm layer height: 1 hr 24 min
0.05mm layer height: 2 hrs 54 min

  1. HI! great side by side comparison! only a question, the 0.05 frog was printed on a creator II?

      1. I’m really impressed by your work here, you pushed the machine under the minimum layer declared by the manufacturer!
