This is a model of a very common style of post seen at the side of UK roads. I have modelled them to fit snugly in to a 4mm hole. 

I found these tiny posts difficult to print without getting stringy pulls between them.

I got the best results on my Ultimaker 2 with the following settings:

ColorFabb PLA/PHA Black

Temperature 205 C
Layer height 0.2mm
Shell thickness 1.2mm
Retraction minimum travel 0.25mm
Z hop when retracting 0.075mm
Print speed 30 mm/s

All other settings were the Normal defaults in Cura 15.04.

I think reducing the speed to 30mm/s was the most important change.
