Posted · wrong circular pockets


i have the following problem:

When printing circular pockets, I get the "wrong tool compensation". That is, inner diameter - line width/2 (Ø40 - 0,2 = Ø39,8) & outer diameter - line width/2. (Ø40 + 0,2 = Ø40,2mm)

So the Printcore drives on the centerline

I use Cura 3.6 and an Ultimaker S5 with the latest firmware. Can someone help me, please?

Thanks a lot

    You can try to play with the setting "Slicing Tolerance" and set it to "exclusive".


    But you will never get the diameter on your object as designed in CAD. Holes are always smaller than designed, so if you need accurate horizontal holes, you should design it slightly bigger or drill them out after printing.
