Layer height 

Adjusting the print height is very important for achieving a nice result. But you must reckon with the fact that a good result will take longer to print. The lower the print height, the longer the process takes and the more layers there are.

Printing thinner layers means much less material flows out of the nozzle, which is beneficial for a few reasons. Namely, the thinner layers cool faster, with better retraction, and fewer defects. Thin layers can also be invisible to the eye, giving a more sophisticated overall appearance. 

Layer width 

When using composite materials such as wood, you’ll need to use a thicker nozzle diameter to keep it from clogging up. When using basic materials, you can achieve the same effect on the surfaces as on the layer height by using thinner nozzles. 

When printing with wood materials, you should use at least 0.5mm nozzle. Fortunately, the structure of the materials will allow you to sufficiently melt the layers.   

We find it interesting to use a concentric pattern instead of a linear pattern on round surfaces. You can achieve a very similar effect as, for example, from a lathe.
