Thanks,stan.distortion said:Tooth sizes and profiles may help, the biggest teeth possible would probably make sense to reduce the effect of the inherit tolerance limitations of printing and helical might not be helping, even that very slight overhang can effect finished dimensions badly. Not sure if you're using a raft, the steep temperature curve immediately above the bed really screws around with dimensions for me but that's probably just my settings, materials etc. Often thought alternative tooth profiles and methods could be better for 3dp, similar to a sprocket with the mating gear using small bearings as rollers for example. Looking really good
yeah I have found some goldilocks zone with my printer where I am getting virtually zero elephants foot, and getting great bed adhesion, and was actually able to print the all the gears without a brim or raft.
