Not too blobby :-)
 
I tried printing "Common Gear set" http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:146289 in ABS again after changing the threaded Z-rods from M8/1.25 to M6/1.0 and while I probably am not using the exact same settings in Cura the Z layer alignment has changed alot for the better with M6.

Too bad I could not find the previous print with the original M8 rods that came with the ORD Bot.

Standard disclaimer on surface quality :) My QU-BD nozzle has no flat surface.

Edit: 0.35mm nozzle, 0.2mm layer

It's not for precision stuff. You'd be limited to certain types of parts. Bits that need to move smoothly over each other with no friction just aren't up to it. This tech is so overhyped I'm tempted to dub it 'the VR of manufacturing'...(which was hailed as the next big thing on the horizon for four decades running).  I think the hype is because people mistake the CG model renders in stores like thingiverse and shapeways for the actual output (which is deceitful, especially when GI etc is used to make them look real)
