Upgraded from 4.8 to 4.9 printer now prints @ 110 to 120% size

Posted · Upgraded from 4.8 to 4.9 printer now prints @ 110 to 120% size

I sliced several files the past few day's on 4.8 Cura, and ended up with accurate prints. Today I sliced in the 4.9 update - dimensions in Cura were correct per model size so the model I drafted in Fusion was not inaccurate - Yet when I generate the gcode and print the model comes out being 10 to 20% larger then the original. Deleted and reloaded my 3rd party printer settings deleting original configuration setting to try that but same problem. Never experienced this issue before?  


JG Aurora A5 (original)

    my print size is OK. use the JG Aurora A5 community firmware. But the Brim width is set to 150% (thin like a needle). and all flowrates to 140% to get a proper result. and please tell the community that the initial layer height must be, leveling distance + initial layer height = layerheight. its simply wrong that increasing this value increases adhäsion to the bed. when u choose initial layer height of  i.e. 0.25  your true value is 0.25 +0.2 leveling distance. if u increase that 0.4 u`ll get only maggots on the bed.the extruder is hovering 0.6mm over the bed. better reduce to 0.1 for better adhäsion.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
