thanks again, I'm slowing making strides with your input and I truly appreciate your help.
Here are the nut and bolt files.. I'm still unable to get them to thread together after print. Its definitely a resolution issue now.
I'm going to try some of the suggestions in the last few posts.
Also, is everyone testing this using the original nozzle from the CubeX? I've been reading up on the E3D v6 nozzles and I'm going to consider using them.. but want to make sure I've reached the limit of the current nozzle first. Does anyone have any experience with upgrading their nozzles?
