Printing objects too small?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone brand new to the whole 3D printing scene, so sorry if this is a stupid question lol. I just downloaded

these "simple ultimaker 2 feet" from thingyverse. I set up the file in CURA, but, when i print the items are tiny. I am not quite sure how i am supposed to know what size this is as no instructions are given on thingyverse. I'm guessing im overlooking some information somewhere or have a setting wrong or something, could someone please point me in the right direction?

Have a look at the comments in the Thingiverse page. It says that the objects should be scaled by a factor of 10, they made a mistake.

It's not you - it's them!


Yeah thanks :) that was me who asked him that question and he responded but honestly thanks for the response!

    • "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.
