Help in Calibrating my printer

Posted · Help in Calibrating my printer

I have a Creality CR-10 Max. I am new to 3d printing and have been printing some prototypes. Each time they come out slightly larger than designed (the holes described below are slightly smaller than designed).

 

I have just started playing with some Cura settings, but would appreciate some advice in terms of how to work through calibration. Let me first quickly describe what I am printing.

 

I have two parts. One part is a supposed to be 1cmx4cmx30cm part. It has a hole in one end that is 14mm and a threaded hole in the other end that is 10mm.

I have another part that is supposed a cylinder with a threaded top to fit into the above part (10mm) and a bottom that is 14.2mm.

 

In short, the important thing is for the threaded parts to fit together:)

 

What I end up getting is a different dimention for both parts. And most importantly the threads to not match up.

 

I am using my .4mm nozzle and I am using PLA 1.75mm.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
