Polygon sizes

Another thing to consider is the size of the polygons. There is a minimum size of detail that each printer can handle. It makes no sense to have polygons much smaller than the minimum detail size. The print won't be better, but the file size will be larger. It makes more work for the slicing program and the printer, which slows things down and may lower the print quality.
