What are the right settings for Model Resolution?

There are many variables in play here and not one answer that fits all situations. But here are some thoughts and guidelines:

  • The more detailed the 3D project will be, the more model resolution may be required.
  • The larger the 3D project, the more model resolution may be required.
  • A good practice when creating a 3D model is to keep the Material Size just a little larger than the 3D model size.

There are also two available higher resolution modes, Extremely high (20X slower) and Maximum (50X slower) that are not normally visible. They can be made available in the Model Resolution pull-down menu by holding the Shift key down before selecting Create a new file or Job Setup. These are provided to help with very unusual or unique situations and should be used with caution, as your computer performance will be degraded. For most users, the 3 normally available Model Resolution settings will cover every project.
