@TechShopMP Thin Walls for Makerbot 3D Printing

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.
