Accuracy vs. Resolution in 3D Printing: Understanding the Difference

Accuracy vs. Resolution in 3D Printing: Understanding the Difference

A lot of words are commonly thrown around when talking about 3D printers and their capabilities. Two of those words are accuracy and resolution, which are often treated as interchangeable – but they’re really not. There’s a difference, and it’s important to understand what that difference is if you’re going to find the right 3D […]
