Re: size accuracy and finish

Thanks Ed! So what you are telling me is this is normal and that is just fine if that is the case.

Ok that is what I was wondering. Of course I am a total newb in all three areas.. CAD, Slice and Printer.. ;-) So maybe I need to post the first question in the Onshape forum.. Just googled "How do I Verify that the solid model is manifold" And I am going to say it isn't! I was having issues with th...
