    I was wondering when a lot of people printed the Benchy, even the first print for BB printer is Benchy too. I just known that this model other than cute, it has a purpose to be used as a tool for calibrating the printer.

    Here is my first print, and I measured it (not all). It is based on http://www.3dbenchy.com/dimensions/
    I have 2 things always in my mind that bothering me (I hope someone could help me)

    - Can we make our printer 100% accurate, or how many (mm or percentage) is the tolerant for the accuracy?
    - How do we calibrate our printer to make it accurate ? Which part of the printer / software setting we need to change to get the best accuracy ?

    thanks

    You will not get 100% accuracy, the technology does not support that. The figures you have are excellent but you can do scaling in your designs to take care of very small errors but not worth it.
