Hello

Anybody who can advice me.

outside dimentions are correct, but the inside dimentions of the holes are all too small.

the right bottom hole, should be 8 is 7.3

left keyhole should be 8x11, is 7.3x10.2

top keyhole should be 12x14, is 11.2x13.3

printed with the ultimaker 3

    Not sure what material you are using (different materials have different shrinkage characteristics), so some general things that helped me a lot getting dimensions right (all line widths that I use are the default widths, except for top/bottom which I 'upped' to .4mm:

    - print outer wall before inner walls

    - print infill before walls

    - inset for outer wall .025mm

    - get temperature of the nozzle right (too high will introduce minor discrepancies, when dimensions are critical, I use as low temperatures as I can to increase viscosity of the plastic when it's laid down on previous layer. But you have to be careful with lowering the temp since it can have a negative impact on layer bonding. So you will need to experiment with your type of filament to find that sweet spot.

    One final thing: please realize that the printer is not printing a pure mathematical circle; instead it mimics a circle by using small lines connecting points on the circle. This also slightly reduces ID's. All things combined can indeed lead to a situation where you have to count these things in while doing the design (make ID's a little larger to obtain the ID you want).

    Edit:

    Some more ideas that can help improve dimensional accuracy:

    - use slower print speeds, especially the speeds on outer walls (don't ruin this by using high inner wall speeds though ;) )

    - lower print jerk

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
