Tips and Tricks for Printing Small Parts

Have you ever tried doing what you thought would be a quick, easy, small print, but ended up with a failed part?

It’s not uncommon for 3D printer users to see success printing larger models, only to be surprised by how difficult it can be to print a small part. The fact of the matter is that printing smaller parts can often be more difficult than printing large parts. Issues such as warping, melting, deformation, and stringiness tend to rear their ugly heads when you attempt to print a small part that is spherical or has sharp vertical points or intricate internal geometry.

So how do you fix or prevent these problems with 3D printing small parts?
