Hi

 

I have some problem with the dimension of printed object in X Y

I print calibration objects and the measure are not good.

On other printers, I can change the number of step to have the good dimension.

On Ultimaker, I didn't find how to do it?

Can you help me?

Regards.

    You cannot and don't need to calibrate the steps, they are fine.

    If you don't get the expected dimensions, you are printing probably too fast or too hot. But there are some other settings as well to achieve better results.

     

    Use for your tests the engineering profile and you will see that the result will be much better.

    OK. I am going to test this profile. But I have only problem on ultimaker. On prusa, artillery, flashforge or COSMYX, no problem for dimension. All my parts can be assembled. 

    So for me calibration is not fine.
