Auto Scaling necessary?

Posted · Auto Scaling necessary?

I am using Autodesk Fusion 360 2.0.11415 and just upgraded to Cura 4.12.0 .  Whenever I send a body for printing to Cura it is Auto Scaled 100000X.  The body that is being printed was designed to be about 6" long in Fusion 360.  Before the Cura update from 4.8 it would be transferred at a reasonable size.  What is going on that it has to be enlarged so much to be seen on Cura?  Is this a Fusion setting or a Cura setting that is creating such an infinitesimally small imported item?

    I think you might be exporting your models in Inches, whereas cura expects them to be in mm. STL unfortunately doesn't have a standard unit size, so it's up to the consumer to interpret it. So either use .3mf files (that do have this capability built in), scale your models by hand or use the barbarian plugin (https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/nallath/BarbarianPlugin)

      • 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
