Hmmm, while some shrinkage is normal, 3% seems to be a bit too much.

Which version of Cura do you use? some 15.* versions are notorious on "shrinking" the sizes.

Also, some PLA brands shrink more than others.

If you are in for some tests, try to use older Cura 14 and dry the PLA as much as you can before usage. An hour in oven pre-heated to about 45-50C should suffice.

That what I would do, anyways.
