I don’t know weather to put this is the hardware or software section.
I have a pretty new Taz 6 that I really love overall. However, my finished parts have sloppy tolerances. If I draw a part say 2 millimeters thick it can come out anywhere up to 2.29 mm thick. If I draw a slot 2.2 mm wide to accept the 2 mm part it could come out as narrow as 1.5 mm. Sometimes it comes out right but 90% of the time I need to trim and cut every part and slot. It gets very frustratrating.
I am using Verbatim PLA and the built in settings in Cura. I never use the “speed” setting and the difference (as regards this problem) between standard and high detail is marginal. if I use “high detail” I may not have to trim by hand as often but I still have to trim most of the time.
So am I expecting too much? Is .5 mm tolerances to much to ask? Is this the machine or Cura?
Perhaps I need to totally rethink my designs but I have had the same problem with every interlocking method I have tried
This and variations of it are are what I am trying to do.
