Hole Horizontal Expansion as the Slope of a Linear Function and Not as Fixed Value


Recommended Posts

Posted · Hole Horizontal Expansion as the Slope of a Linear Function and Not as Fixed Value



I printed a piece with 5 holes from 2 mm to 6 mm. All the holes are smaller than designed and is expected. If I plot the expected hole size (X) vs the measured hole size (Y) then I can see slope of 1.022  with a line that fits very nicely to the data points.


Is there a way to use the slope of the above function instead of a fixed number of mm in Hole Horizontal Expansion setting?
