Cura setting for perfect tolerance as Makerbot Print?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I been using Makerbot all series of printer for the past 3 years at my workplace. and the problem I have now my company use ultimaker S5 and 3.

I was testing the tolerance for print in place model (model without assemble but all the parts can move freely).

I been trying to print those two models from thingiverse as I printed them many times at makerbot print and it came out perfect.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:925556 (0.65mm Tolerance)

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:331035 (65pcs one)

The Print line seems thicker and some of the joints fused together and can not move freely (as I break few of the print outs).

I would like to ask whats the setting at Cura ( I am using Cure 3.4.1) to reduce the thickness or can it be set as close as makerbot setting?

I know the lines they extrude are slight thicker which cause the problem.

    • "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.
