Tolerance and clearance

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tolerance and clearance

I am new to the whole 3D printer game and I have a Ulitmaker S3 to play with.... Company not mine...

 

However I wanted to print out a tolerance key from another site and they are all stuck together except the 0.5 size....

 

How and where do I change the Clearance between each key.

Hi,

 

try the Engineering profile in Cura (should be available for the S3). They are optimized for accuracy.

 

Regards

So I Import the stl file from another site and then open in Ulitimaker Cura.... there are a whole load of options in the right hand settings.☺..... however I have been looking for ideas on what to change or focus on that will allow the objects to move....

Thank you so far for the support, but that is exactly what I did accept the default settings.

 

I have attached the file I am using. Paid for and downloaded of a youtube site..... using a Ultimaker S3....

 

It is a brillant machine but when I slice and print everything is fused together except .5mm

 

The rest is solid...
