When I loaded Base B into Cura it says it is too big for my printrbot simple metal. Can I reduce Z by 0.01 and still have it work?

I've printed this design on my printrbot simple metal. Unless you are printing with rafts or have a brim/skirt set to high or too far out you should not have to scale the design. If you are, I would recommend changing the raft/skirt/brim parameters. I would also recommend seeing what Cura has set your bed size to or what the design is being imported as if Cura is saying the design is too big. The candy machine is designed in millimeters and should be imported in millimeters.

Tolerance between parts is 0.25-0.3 mm which is a snug fit. If you modify the design you risk the design not fitting together easily.

My cura settings are 150, 150, 150mm and it will only let me print it if I put "raft" for platform adhesion type. I think it is because printrbot puts down a line of filament outside of the design before it prints unless you use a raft.
