|tolerance material (or more accurately clearance) [message #55773] Mon, 22 October 2012 17:00 UTC
I'm going to be building items with poles and holes... what I need to know is what clearances need to be between the hole and the pole...
I am looking for a snug fit but must not be loose...
I know its going to depend on the material... but surely there should be a guidelines info table that gives this kind of information... I cannot seem to find anything...
e.g. Hole 2.00mm --- pole to go through hole (tight) =?mm
I have seen people producing models for "friction tests" (see bartv) but think that we all need to know this... so should be supplied as support info?
Should also mention that I wish to print them in place at the same time without fusing together!
Many thanks in advance.
