Printed 2 in PLA, one facing up, the other on its side to compare hole size difference.

The one with the hole facing up printed a hole that barely holds a M4 tap. But it looks as if it will take the tap with a bit of force and will do the job.

The one with the hole facing side printed a hole much too small for M4 and it barely held a M3 tap and I'm planning to use it as a M3 tap holder.

This helped me to compare my printer's calibration and flaws and I know that holes printed facing up (horizontally) come much smaller than those printed sideways (vertically).
