Hey, I looked on the forum before asking this. I have recently been getting into puzzle designing. I'm almost ready to load my parts onto shapeways. But I have a quick question: When I designed the parts to fit together, I made all my pieces to fit together using the exact same diameters (in a circle example) for the "male" and "female" part. Should I make the "male" part slightly smaller? like maybe .001 in? So it's not to tight? What difference between the two sizes do you recommend? Thanks

This thread should contain everything you need to know about tolerances. Eric's examples are extremely helpful.
