FAQ #25 FAQ Manufacturing (

For living hinges, we suggest a minimum thickness of .65mm or .025in. This minimal thickness will ensure that your hinges turn smoothly and do not break easily. If living hinges are not at least this thickness, they will be unusable, so we suggest double-checking the thickness before printing if you have any live hinges in your files.
