I wouldn't advise this! The stylus isn't playing a smooth waveform, it is attempting to play a staircase textured groove wall. The constant bashing of the needle between steps is analogous (pardon the pun) to applying an improperly light, downward tracking force with a normal record, also very bad. Besides the distortion, it wears down the needle very quickly with all the side to side groove bashing going on!

If a modern needle is 0.003 inches wide, and is (often) elliptical and around 0.012 inches long and the resolution of the 3D printer used was 600dpi (0.002) I don't see what the concern is. The stylus is over five times as long as the coarsest grain on the sidewall. In actuality 3D printer's don't shit out perfect little 0.001666666" cubes, and so the actual coarseness would be even less, no?
