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.

    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....

    The tweeks and options in the "custom" section are overwhelming. Sometimes it's easier to start with the "Recommended" section and -if the "intent profiles" are available, as for the S-series, choose the spot that matches the desired result.

    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...
