    Hyrel Sample Prints: Davo's Three Resolution Test Print

    I designed a new test print last week. The bottom (longest) section is printed with 400 micron layers; the middle section with 200 micron layers, and the top section has 100 micron layers. Each section is 4mm thick.

    Here are some pics of it:

    I can see them just fine. Very nice quality and it has a didactic value in itself.

    yep definitely looks like a block of plastic printed at different layer resolutions :-)

    the bump side does look kinda rough, particularly for the .1mm top print.
    what material were you using ?

    any slicer can do that - if you print one file after another. Would be pretty easy to do with makerware. But in 3 prints not one.
    But I'm guessing the onboard hyrel computer has it's own propriatary slicer.

    So the separate prints must know to keep the same Z height between prints.

    We use the standard current version of Slic3r.

    I generated three gcode files, then combined header1, body1, body2, body3, and footer3 into one file.
