I had to do a reprint of one of the tank models using the 0.25mm nozzle with a layer height of 0.08mm. This is approaching, but not quite at, the best quality that my Ultimaker 2 can produce.
I could have printed this model with a layer height of 0.06 and, while I do not have one, there is a 0.15mm nozzle for even finer tiny details. I printed at 25mm/sec so I could also have slowed down some. However...this print already was going to take over eight hours so I left it at pretty darn good ...
... EXCEPT ... for the quality issue that I have that left some gaps on the top fill. I can easily tune this out but it was too late for this print! Frustrating!
