So I’m doing up a quick 3D print of the second half of the Hive logo as a quick holdover for the BeeBox. I remember Ryan talking about how he had to offset a surface or something due to the plastic squishing out. Is there a value anyone can name as a rough guide for how much to offset the surface to guarantee it fitting, say, over a screw rod of a specific diameter? The fit doesn’t need to be tight, in this case, just enough to guarantee fitting over it.
Specifically, in this case, it needs to fit over the thread of a 10-24 screw, which has a nominal dimension of 0.1900". (As of writing, I haven’t actually taken calipers to the screws… Bad me. Go sit in the corner.)
PS: I’m currently not certified to use the 3D printers, so either I’ll need for someone to print this or I’ll need someone to take me through the process of not breaking/ruining-for-others the printers so I can use them.
