Parts come out too short

Recommended Posts

Posted · Parts come out too short

I some of my later parts have been too short.  I printed a test cube in PETG and it is almost .25" too short.  When I print in PLA, the cube is fine, so I figure my printer is OK.  What settings can affect printed part height?

The height of the part is a multiple of the layer height + initial layer height for the first layer.

But keep in mind the shrinkage of the material + distance nozzle/bed + flow also have influence the height.

 

The easiest way to compensate it, is to scale the object just in Z a little bit.
