Selecting a build resolution
     Some factors to consider in determining the build resolution desired:

  A. The thinnest section in the X-Y directions throughout the part, generally wall thickness or surface
          features.
  B. The thinnest section in the Z direction. This includes the depth of engraved or raised lettering.
  C. Overall size of the part.
  D. The final appearance required for the part.

With the Viper si2® machine, there are two factors for resolution:

1. The thickness of each layer or slice through the CAD model.
2. The diameter of the laser spot used to draw each layer.
These two combined will determine the smallest feature or thinnest wall a given resolution will create.

6 mil Build Style - 0.006" layers and a 0.010" beam diameter

4 mil Build Style - 0.004" layers and a 0.010" beam diameter

2 mil NR Build Style - 0.002" layers and a 0.010" beam diameter

2 mil HR Build Style - 0.002" layers and a 0.0030" beam diameter

1 mil UHR Build Style - 0.001" layers and a 0.0030" beam diameter

As a general rule, the finer the build resolution, the more costly it becomes to create the part. This is a direct result of the amount of time it takes to build the part.
