Stl object (dimensions) size 15.04 vs 15.06.02

Recommended Posts

Hello Ultimaker Cura users,

I like Cura 15.06 because of %25 better quality and %30-35 faster printing. Only one small question to the users:

When I load stl to Cura 15.04, it is showing real object dimensions:


But same stl loading in to the 15.06 changes object dimensions automatically to fit the print area size:


do you have any solution.

"Thank you Daid (David) for the "NEXT GENERATION CURA"

Could you post this on the github? All feature requests / issues / bugs /etc should be posted there, so we can keep track of it.

We should make it clearer that the object scales in this case to prevent confusion.


Hello Nallath,

thank you for your quick reply. I would put this issue to Github but I don't have Github account. If anyone want link this issue to github, please feel free to do it. Like I said I'm very happy with Cura 15.06.I wanted to buy the Simplfy3d printing software but there is a no reason for this anymore. Thanks to Daid (David), he released a very fantastic printing software with all the possibilities what every user can play with.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
