With Big Brick (TM) coming after creators, I'm surprised this is still up!

This is a great design. No elephant's foot at all, and I'm printing PLA on a Tronxy XY-2.

hola amigo una pregunta para crear otra cosas que sea compatible con lego que me recomiendas

undertube looks great, I can put it on anything ... but the stud does not work for me (MK3S), nothing will hold on that, experimenting with STUD_DIAMETER now ...

I'm having trouble with the top of the blocks as well, nothing will join securely to the top. I have dialed the tolerance all the way down to 0 and still not good. Printing on an Ender 3 and slicing with Cura 4.3. Are there any print settings that might help? How do you experiment with stud diameter, I don't see a parameter for that?

Hi, I created a bunch of files (see attachment), printed them all and tested which one works with my printer and the current filament :) R.

That's surprising that the studs aren't big enough. You don't have horizontal expansion set to a negative value in Cura, do you? Since the dimensions are accurate, I guess maybe your printer is under-extruding, so you could try setting the flow a little higher, or set the horizontal expansion to a positive value.

Horizontal Expansion is set to 0 except for the first layer. I think I might be under extruding a little lately, I'll play around a bit more

I went into the code and found the STUD_DIAMETER variable and increased it from 4.8 to 4.9 and now everything fits well.

There's a tolerance parameter for adjusting the fit. I had the same problem with the first few versions, but after I added the tolerance parameter I got a perfect fit.
