Cal cube size problems

Recommended Posts

So when i print the 20mm cal cube its comes out at about 19.6 ish not 20. I am using Cura and I do calibrate the filament extruder as part of the setup and its very precise.

I am curious where that error comes from? Any ideas?

I thought it has to do with the steppers or their drivers.

I would assume that this would not be resolved by a heated bed would it? Especially on taller parts.

I am building another 3D printer out of profiles and currently deciding to salvage ultimaker parts or not. The arduino board is easy enough but the extruder I'm hating and would like a MakerBot style extruder.

      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.
