  1. That link is for a completely different printer. I am using the Monoprice Delta Mini. This looks like the "void your warranty" procedure to correct the problem, here: MP Delta Mini Size Recalibration to correct 1.6% undersize prints with default settings
  2. Question: What are "normals"? I haven't heard about those. Or, if it is complicated can you point two something that describes them?
  3. Wow! I can't express enough gratitude. I spent days struggling with this. I didn't know about this tool, I will get it. I appreciate your time, the help diagnosing it, and sharing this tool which I didn't know about or know that I needed. Thanks again.
  4. You are entirely correct. The printer appears to be mis-calibrated. According to Monoprice, there is no way to recalibrate it. Hence, I am looking for a systematic, reliable solution in Cura...one that would not be forgotten about. Equally, some people might find that they have a preferred rotation of the article that is desired. I like designing it facing me, but Monoprice places the front of the article 60 degrees turned facing the back.
  5. I'm crunching on a project and can't fight a learning curve. Would you have any interest in developing such a plug-in for general use by everybody? I would be willing to contribute something for it. I would imagine others have this problem, too. It seems to be the case for all Monoprice Delta Mini printers, at least. They seem consistently off by 1.6%.
  6. Attached are files. I have reduced my model as much as I can while the problem still reproduces. In the first image you will see highlighted in yellow what the model looks like on the bottom In the second image you see what Cura is producing for the first layer. Notice that the hole is missing in Cura's slicing of the first layer. Notice in the model a line that is on the right-facing wall about 10% up from the floor. I'd this line is deleted, the problem disappears. However, I have carefully looked inside the model and it is not forming a floor or compartment...it's ju
  7. The actual printed models are coming out about 1.5% too small. If I use the Cura Scale feature in the UI set too 101.5% the model is the correct size. Since this seems to be some oddity with my Monoprice Delta Mini printer, I would like to permanently scale everything for this printer. Basically, to have in the printer profile a "Scale" setting so that everything printed is the correct size. Is there some setting to do this? Either a Cura setting or perhaps a G-Code that will auto-scale everything by the needed 1.6%?
  8. Cura is generating incorrect GCode. It is closing off an area that should be open. I have what is essentially a duct/chimney running from the bottom of a structure into the module of it. The structure is much like a house, and the duct/chimney is open on the ground level and runs up into the structure, where it dead-ends. The intent is to have a cavity in the structure that can be accessed from the opening in the floor. The duct is being rendered mostly correctly. But on one specific layer the extruder is filling in the duct, adding a one layer floor, complete with supp
