Hey,

i try to print a Iron Man Helmet in 1:1 Size.

So if i load the helmet in Cura this size is to big.

Now i cut the helmet in Netfabb in 6 Parts.

Problem is if i load the parts now in Cura the size are way to big, bigger than the original Helmet.

Is ther any Size information in the Helmet file that i don´t see or what is wrong.

If i make 1 step forward all went 2 steps back.. arghhhh.

Hope for help

Thanky Carsten

    if you look at the dimensions in netfabb before slicing the part can you validate that they make sense in mm?

    your part might be so big that Cura scaled it down when importing. I believe I've seen that before.

    STL files should be in mm. Make sure in netfabb that when you export to STL you do so in mm. If you don't you can just scale the object in Cura by clicking on it and putting in the correct scale factor. Usually you want to scale by either a factor of 10 100 1000 or 25.4 (25.4 is number of mm in an inch). Except you want it smaller so 1/10, 1/100, 1/1000 or 1/25.4.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
