3d printing accuracy

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3d printing accuracy

Hello guys, i have a problem with 3d model.

As you can see this picture, the green is output of width while the orange is drafting in cad software. My question is " How can i get output scale closer to drafting scale?? 


I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    For profile, I use customize setting.


    Print it again with one of the engineering profiles, these profiles are optimized for dimensional accuracies. 


    Horizontal expansion could solve the problem, but keep in mind that it will reduce all dimensions.

    The key is to print slow with equalized speeds and some other settings, which are all included in the engineering profiles.

    Generally, my experience is: print slow, cool, and in thin layers, with a material that does not cause too much blobs and strings (but that still fullfills your other wishes concerning temperature resistance and strength of course).
