Explain Tolerance Settings?

Can anyone explain or point me to a good article that explains what the Tolerance settings are in the Prusa Slicer when you are making connectors?

RE: Explain Tolerance Settings?

I have the same questions.  I have not found a simple answer and probably have 20 or more tabs open on my browser for this question alone.  Much depends on what you want and actually need.  Finer detail, smaller nozzle.  I just received some 0.2mm nozzles for some projects that are only a few mm thick.  I just did a test on my printer as I was concerned about accuracy and found that over 200mm, I get 200.45mm on both X and Y axis as most of my prints were smaller than what they should have been.  I had done some adjustments to my machine and that may have changed things.  I also was using the beta version of the slicer for the latest tests.  I have also found out that one change may affect another variable.

There are online videos and also guides.  I found this one through searches and from posts here.  Print Tuning Guide There was another site but it has announced that it may be closing down.  I really doubt there are any single guide since there are so many variables that can affect the precision.  Including your own machine.
