Posted · New to the forum with a strange question

I would like to thank everyone in advance.  I have learned a great deal from the contributors on this forum.  

 

I have an FT-5 R1 running marlin 1.1.8 and using cura 3.1.1

 

My prints are coming out elongated along the z axis.  I am printing a cube with a round hole in it along the y axis in the middle.  the cube is 20mm on all sides.  What i get is a rectangular box 20x20x50 or more.

 

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong?

    Resolved  The default z axis default steps was way out of line.  Moved it from 1000 to 399 and perfect print.  Hopefully this will help someone else
