I’ve been having this issues for a while now and I figured it’s time to finally take care of it. I’ve tried looking around but I haven’t been able to find a clear answer on how to fix it.
When I print parts with holes in them, any holes on the sides of the print, along the X and Y axis, appear to be slightly squashed. Holes that run through the part top down on the Z axis are perfectly round.
Now they could be stretched but it happens on both X and Y so it leads me to believe they are being squashed on Z.
I currently don’t have a digital caliper to determine where the fault is.
I’m wondering if there is a setting in the firmware I need to tweak, something doesn’t seem to be calibrated correctly.
Is there a step by step guide out there that helps you calibrate the printer, like a list of objects to print, measure, and change settings in a specific order to get things dialed in? There must be a series of things done at the factory that determines things like the E-steps.
