Wrong size of print with Cura 2.3 and 0.8 nozzle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just printed two different but similar parts that look like concentric rings joined with spokes.

Due to the size of the parts, and the very long printing time, I changed from a 0.4mm nozzle to a 0.8mm nozzle.

After printing I measured the parts.

Note: I require the parts to have a good diameter tolerance, something like +/-0.1mm.

All the outside diameters are correct to the model, BUT all the inside diameters are too small by about 0.5/0.6mm. This is the same on both different, but similar, parts.

I investigated the possibility that due to the size of the part (about 200mm) that this could be shrinkage, but that cannot be the case as the small inside diameters are out by the same as the large inside diameters (both 0.5/0.6mm).

Is this a known feature? Can it be corrected?

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
