But seriously.... The only rule I use is if an anchored overhang extends out
farther than the support spacing I'm using, (.4" to .25") I put supports
under it. "Better Safe Than Salad" we say here. It IS true though, if
you're just going one layer, the thing can pretty much extend to the edges
of the tank because the recoater is just about the only enemy it has. As
long as the Doctor Bar or Zephyr Bar stays put, no problem.

Subject: Minimum Overhang Thickness

I'm curious as to whether or not there are any RP techniques that can
actually build an overhang that is of a single layer thickness. Is there a
chart somewhere that I just can't seem to find?
