0.01mm layer thickness

Hi everyone,

Can a normal (not modified) Prusa Mendel i3 achieve 0.01mm layer thickness?

Let say i am printing a cube 1cm height.
Can i get 0.01mm by adjusting 0.01 in the layer thickness in slicing software (Slic3r, Cura, etc.)? Is it just simple like that?
And confirm 0.01mm by getting the height of printed cube (by measuring) divided by the number of printed layers (by counting) => 1cm/(number of printed layers)?

Thank you.

Theoretically it is simple as that.
Once I was able to print small parts with 0.08mm layer on my crappy I3. I highly doubt it is feasible to print 0.01mm layer height with it.

I wonder if you can even get the bed level enough maybe with a granite bed using air bearings that is 0.3 thou as in .0003 inches and take a while to print

Maybe looking for an SLA/resin printer instead?
