Does thickness matter? Today we'll find out which layer height you should choose to get the strongest prints! I printed test specimens with layer heights from 0.05mm to 0.40mm and measured their strength.

You can find all of the results also on my blog: https://www.cnckitchen.com/blog/the-influence-of-layer-height-on-the-strength-of-fdm-3d-prints
