2 mm hole gets printed all solid

Posted · 2 mm hole gets printed all solid

I have built an adapter to mount on a syringe. Its hole width at the top should be 2mm in diameter.

 

CURA shows the hole and the dimensions seem to fit:

When this adapter is printed with a 0.8mm AA nozzle, the hole in the tip simply does not exist! The adapter is air- und watertight! I have experienced that they always tend to be too small -- but there is a real leap between 2mm and solid airtight

 

Is there a way to achieve exact inner hole diameters?

    Hi @klaus_kraemer, I sliced the top (narrow) part of your model and it printed very nicely using a 0.4mm nozzle and 0.5mm wide lines. Layer height was 0.1mm. I wonder if your print is suffering from overheating. You're actually printing very slowly (4mm/S) and maybe the nozzle is heating the model too much and so you are getting poor definition?

     

    If you do try using a smaller nozzle and 0.5mm wide lines be sure to enable the overlap compensation and also set the Mininum Wall Flow quite high (I used 80%) as this will stop a lot of extra travel and tiny extrusions that would otherwise happen. Hope this helps.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
