People often ask about getting thin walls when they use the 3D printer. It is sometimes desirable to make a wall that is one shell or wall with no infil. I really like this effect with PLA printing because of PLA's translucence. 

When you design your part make your wall 0.020" thick (or about 0.5mm). This will give you the one wall or shell desired.

Thanks for posting the tip! I need to update my cookie cutter CAD to be like this. That is a cool look
