Hole Horizontal Expansion as Machine Setting?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Hole Horizontal Expansion as Machine Setting?

For my Ender 3 I need to change "Hole Horizontal Expansion" to something like "0.075" for good results.


I only have one printer, but I imagine you would need different values if you have different printers.

And this setting is only valid for a specific machine. Right?


So I think it this should be saved in the Machine Settings (Printer profile).


This may apply to other "Horizontal Expansion" settings, too.


What do the experts think? 😄

    I'd argue that it depends equally on the material and the machine. Due to how the hole horizontal expansion works, i wouldn't enable it by default either.
