If I'm printing buildings that are about 2-3 inches high as scenery on my Elegoo Saturn, how thick should I make the walls? We're talking square boxy-type buildings with basic surface details.

I don't want to make them solid because that would put a lot of material on my FEP at the same time.

Unless you can print the buildings upside down, limited details on roof, overhang will be more of an issue than wall thickness.
