The Off-By-8% Solution

I couldn’t understand why my print-in-place hinges were failing. They worked perfectly in the Squeaky Sunlu PETG, but they were so fused together with the Hatchbox PLA that trying to break them free broke the model instead.

Then I discovered that I’d somehow set the extrusion multiplier to 1.05 for that filament, when the correct (calculated and verified) value was 0.97. Oops.
