    that is seriously impressive !

    What tolearance did you have on the joints ?
    ie difference between the size of the ball and the size of the socket ?

    And did the vapour smoothing effect this ?

    This one looks great! I wonder what's the texture of it. Would it be suitable as a toy for a 8yo child?

    Texture is the usual from FDM print. The figure measures 60mm, so I think it's very small for a child of that age

    May be the quality of the photo, pieces are as they came out of the printer

    I used Flashforge ABS. I think Wood Filament must works for something like this.
