A classic faceted beaker was made to demonstrate the polishing capabilities of plastic. A very thick 1.4 mm nozzle was used to print the wall of the glass in one pass. We use such a nozzle when printing prototypes of glass products, the wall thickness of glass is usually much thicker than standard nozzles of 0.4 mm. If you use a standard nozzle, the glass wall will be printed in several passes and there will be air pores between the tracks of the plastic. They will not allow you to achieve transparency of the product in the future.
