*The mechanical movement of the printhead is capable of going down to 0.01mm. This is accomplished by our accurate stepper motors that allow 100 steps for every mm of movement in the X and Y directions. The final print accuracies are going to be dependent upon a few factors such as what material you are using, and the diameter of the nozzle. Various filaments will expand and retract at different rates due to each specific thermal properties and die swell. Luckily, all results are very repeatable. If due to thermal shrink and expansion you are off by 0.5% in the X direction, you can scale your model by 0.5% in X to increase accuracy.
