So perhaps I'm missing something. 1kg black and .5kg for pink comes out to $37 after tax/discount.
I can't speak to the quality of this monoprice rebranded stuff though. Is it good?
Does it extrude like spun gold or something?

Hi. I calibrated my printer steps/mm to have it perfect, but my prints are not dimensionally accurate. Do you know what I can do?

How inaccurate? have you tried the 20x20x20 cube? what are you print dimensions? what printer are you using? original firmware? have you looked at your slicer settings? there may be a correction setting in dimensions in your slicer

Hi. I actually tried the 10x10x10mm cube about 20 times.

Stock Tevo Tornado (thanks, Slickdeals). I tried Cura, Kisslicer and even Simplify3D. Print dimensions are approximately 10.2(X)x10.2(Y)x8.75(Z)mm. Z is consistently off by about the same amount no matter which slicer. I've tried the 10x10x10, the 3DBenchy (friend measure his in his Tornado), a 5x5x30 prism, etc and they all seem to be off by about 1-1.3mm in Z. I have tried printing circular objects and interior holes also seem to be under dimensioned but I think that's pretty typical for any 3d printer. 0.2mm layer heights, various printing speeds from 10mm/s to 60mm/s, 0.4mm nozzle, 0.4 layer width, extrusion multiplier from 0.9 to 1.05, nozzle temp from 185 to 225C, bed temp from 35C to 75C.

I've tightened belts, eccentric nuts, calibrated axes, calibrated extrusion, etc. By calibrated, I mean if I tell the printer to move/extrude 100mm, the printer will move/extrude exactly 100mm, but once it's actually printing, it doesn't work that well. I did try negative offsets a couple of times but I don't think I noticed any change and I think a positive offset would just make the printer print in the air. I've leveled my bed several times from business card height all the way down to nozzle touching the bed.
I've already sent an email about return/RMA because I've spent 50+ hours in the past week or two trying to fix this but I just gave up. I might cancel the return if I can solve this.

Why don't you just scale the model in the slicer? If you determined that it's uniform and deterministic, then that's what people do.

Maybe scaling the model would work if the dimensions were uniformly incorrect (as in a percentage), but they're constantly incorrect (as in off by 1.3mm every time no matter the size of the model).

Plus, I don't think I should be having to work around the clear defects of a $350 product. It is a very well reviewed 3d printer. No one else seems to be having these problems. It seems like everyone else is getting amazing prints out of this product but me.

Hm..... I find that baffling. I don't see how a printer can be 1.3mm off on a print regardless of whether it's a 1mm in length or 1000mm. That's not how these printers work. If it's off, it should be off a percentage of the length.

It is very weird. Maybe that's why I've gotten almost no response in Tevo Tornado and 3d printing groups/forums. I'll try printing a 5x5x100mm stl tonight just to see what happens.
