UM3 tolerance

Recommended Posts

Guys I tried to print this design a couple of times: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:455507

it's called cleven wrench and I had no luck at all since the ratchet teeth are a kinda stuck and it doesn't turn as you would expect, see the picture below.

Basically I used standard settings and genuine ultimaker pla.

Now I'm wondering about the tolerance of this printer and if I should calibrate or tune up something...

I took a look at the file. That was most helpful as you will need to print the parts separately and then assemble. What you printed was the assembled wrench.

There are two files called assembly2.stl and assm.stl. These are so you can see how those parts look when assembled, but all the other parts need to be printed and then put together to look like the final printed assembly.

Yes you're right I have seen the single parts but I thought anyway that I could print the whole design in place. Otherwise what's the meaning of uploading a file which contains the fully assembled wrench? It's just a prop?

I do not know about that. Usually when you see that, it is a 'print in place' type of model. But when I looked at the file, I noticed there was no 'breaker gap'. That makes sense since you would want the ratchet action to be tight and not slip at all.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
