I cant offer anything useful (because I don't have a 3DP) other than to say I hear about this issue quite a bit in other forums where people are attempting to make things with a bit more dimensional precision. (And no, desk goblin figurines don't fall into this category HaHa). Some have found distortion can also vary in one dimension vs another, like a 1.000" CAD hole measure 0.990" on one axis and 1.010" on another axis. Maybe a better tester is print a hexagon or octagon shape & then you can caliper across adjacent flats in X, Y and Angle to get a sense of relative difference. Holes might be a bit more fussy to get the same ID comparison. I hear of similar issues with CNC routers & then they have some kind of X & Y correction factor in the software. The other thing I hear mentioned is 3DP plastic parts can stress relieve. So a hole feature in a symmetric part may not distort much, but put the same hole off on one side of a thicker / non-symetrical / transitioning part & it could.
