Which FDM machine are you using? You'll need to build the calibration
block to determine your x, y and z shrinkages. They may differ by a few
thousands, but you should still end up with a circle if done correctly.
I hope that's helpful.

Hi List,
We are facing a peculiar problem while building
cylindrical/circular parts on our FDM m/c.Instead of
round shape we get eliptical shape.
What can be the problem

Thanking in advance for all the responses.
