  1. Today I finally found and fixed the problem. After trying out various things I noticed that the all of my pulley are wobbling like crazy. Therefore I have done an upgrade to GT2 pulleys and belts which was the best thing I have done so far. A 10x10x10mm cube now measures 9.98x9.97x10.02mm. So for everyone out there who also gets wrong dimensions for your x and y axis: Watch your pulleys when you print something or when you just move the printhead. If they wobble then this is most likely your problem.
  2. I just checked all belts and I can say they are quite tight, so no problems there.
  3. Thanks for the ideas. I have done the x and y calibration with the sticks today and it fits perfectly. As much as I remember all of the belts are pretty tight but I will have a look on these as fast as possible.
  4. Thanks for your reply. Today I tried another 10x10x10mm cube with your advice. I adjusted the print speed to 20mm/s and the temperature to 195°. After the print finished I waited some time till everything cooled down to room temperature. As before the height was perfect. The width in y-direction was also great this time with 10,05mm. But just like before the width in x-direction is corrupt with only 9,7mm. As the y-direction shows great results I don't think it is because the material is shrinking too much. Is it maybe a problem with the stepper motor of the x-axis?
  5. Just some weeks ago I bought myself a Ultimaker Original + kit and assembled it. It works great with various things where exact dimensions aren't needed. But as I want to use it mainly for printing special parts for engineering, I checked if it prints the right measurements. I started off with a simple 10x10x10mm cube. After it finished I first checked the height. It was perfect, exactly 10mm. After that I inspected the sides and for the y-direction the measurement wasn't that good, but still acceptable (around 9,93mm). Than I inspected the other side and it was only 9,65mm wide. I suspected
