Reviewing the print results

There are two important variables that we need to consider for a successful interpretation of a model with texture detail; they are as follows:

  • Printing resolution
  • The scale of the model

We can see in the close-up in the following image that the stamping is a little softer than the digital model. By increasing the print resolution, we'll gain a little more sharpness in the form. If we were to print the model even larger, this would clarify the texture even more.
