I've 3D printed (ABS) two mating parts which are having face to face contact (two concentric cylinders).
There is no interference in cad model but 3D printed parts are not assembling.
Can any one tell me what clearence (and other tips) should i use in next project and any possible repair for these parts.
Thanks for your time.

Are you sure about the ABS ? That would mean a part not printed by shapeways, so one would probably have to know the accuracy of the printer
you used (something of the RepRap type ?) to give advice.
ABS is attacked by acetone (typical ingredient of nail varnish removers), so you may be able to make your parts fit if the overlap is not too much.
