The speed is very printer dependent. On the gMax 1.5+ we print it at around 130mm/sec movement speed, 70mm/sec print speed with 60% perimeter speeds. You can also try printing with z-axis lift to avoid the tricky overhangs. As for layer height it is really up to the effect you are going for. We personally like seeing the cascade of layers (as the light shines) so we prefer a thicker layer height of around 240 microns.
