Hi there,

I just received a model I ordered in strong black & flexible - it's a little box with a sliding lid.

The sliding lid consists mostly of one big rectangular sheet, about 157x106 mm and 1 mm thick.

Sadly, one of the long sides is close to 1 mm longer than the other!

While it is easy enough to correct with a sharp knife, it is not the accuracy I hoped to see (and makes me wonder what the impact will be on other models I have planned to print).

Is this deviation (157 -> 158 mm in 106 mm across) normal or did something unusual happen there?

Thanks & regards,
