PLA print settings on Mini

Anyone with a Mini tried all the print settings ie.

0.05 Ultradetail

0.07 Ultradetail

0.10 Detail

0.15 Quality 

etc.etc. up to 0.25 Draft


and has pictures of the differences. Or if someone can suggest a small STL file so I can print them myself. Most test prints I have found are going to be hours at 0.05 Im trying to find a print that will show off or showthe flaws in trying to use such small fine settings so I can decide on my default preset

RE: PLA print settings on Mini

I was told by PRUSA support that printing less than 50% the nozzle diameter is a waste of time.  That would mean with a 0.4mm nozzle, anything below 0.20 would be a waste.  I have tried 0.15 and 0.10 and don't see much of a difference.  I'm using 0.20 for almost everything.  Someday I'll buy a smaller nozzle and see if I can get results from 0.15 and below printing.

With a 0.4 nozzle, I use 0.1 and 0.15 for small models or smallish ones with round surfaces. I definitely see a difference compared to 0.2 and 0.3.
