It doesn't really stop at the material choice, the system chosen to
build it will have a large bearing on what is achievable. In reality
though the real question is at what thickness are these materials fit
for the intended purpose

I was wondering what the minimum, buildable short wall (2-3cm)
thickness (that people have been able to achieve) is for the following
materials. I would imagine that there would be variance in that figure,
based on the build direction, specific machine beam width etc, but any
info would be appreciated. Also, if you've ever bonded that material
with epoxy I'd love to hear your experience.
