I’m designing a snap fit mechanism for a case. The lid will have tabs, and the bottom will have grooves for those tabs.
Here is a groove I’ve made. I have some questions:
I want to make a tab that exactly fits the empty space of the groove. How do I do that without a lot of manual work?
Should the tab be exactly the size of the groove? Or should it be a little bigger (how much)?
The depth of this groove is 0.75mm. My printer (a Monoprice, although I also have access to a FlashForge that I’ve never tried) has at best 0.1mm precision. Do you think my groove depth is something the Monoprice could handle?
