Printing smaller than 3D model

Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing smaller than 3D model


I made a test object with dimensions 100*100*100 mm but it seemed to be printed at 99*99*99 mm in real life after measuring. Any clue as to how to change this?

Yes. Printed plastic shrinks.... so you need to correct for that in your model... basicaly make it bigger... if you need an accurate size you need to find it with some trial and error....
