I've always been wondering about the actual accuracy of 3D printing devices. When looking for the perfect machine to buy, I looked at the speed, price, filaments supported etc, but also accuracy. I once asked somebody who could give me some advice on what to look at.
One of the things I was told about was that many printers don't necessarily have that crazy precision of 0.05 mm (50 micron). Another person told me something different - he said most of those printers actually were capable of putting out 50 micron layer height. How is it really?
Another thing is that the official slicers for those machines also claim that this precision is real, for instance the PrusaSlicer v2.0.
There are many high-end, very expensive machines and even they sometimes claim their resolution is worse than 50 microns.
