Ultimaker 3 accuracy

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I encounter some accuracy issues with my brand new UM3E. The prints are really nice but not accurate. I printed 2 calibration objets (20mm cube and 100mm gauge) Here are the results:

- 20mm cube:        X=20.3        Y=20.21     and Z=20.31

- 100mm gauge:    X=100.09    Y=100.38   and Z=50.33

 

I own a prusa at home and i know how to add offsets and change the steps per mm on Marlin. But on the UM3 i did not find where to modify these parameters, so help would be aprecciated.

 

Thanks in advance ;-)

It could be nothing more than your Cura settings (which we need to see), which affect accuracy. You should be able to hit 20mm with +/- 0.05 tolerance or better with the right settings.
