Depending on the material requested and functionality required, my
RapidToolmaker does a great job as low as 0.0005

Most of the time, I find that 0.00075 gives me a great surface finish.....

> Hello RPML Community,
> We have a customer that is requesting a part be built in .001" layer
thickness. He has informed us that he has been told (from a disclosed
source) that the SLA machines are capable of .001" layer thickness. Now my
question is has anyone been able to achieve that kind of layer thickness
repeatedly to successfully build a part. And be able to repeat that process
over and over to create an assembly.
