Posted (edited) · Cura Seams to Be Shrinking Model After Slicing

So when I run the slicer it seems that cura is shrinking the model. The fact is I know it's shrinking the model because I printed without checking the preview and the print was very small. Is there a setting I accidentally edited that is causing this? I appreciate any help. Thanks.

    You would be making it much easier for people to help you if you shared a project file. Use File -> Save project..., and upload the file to something like google drive or dropbox so you can share a link to it. With that project file we get to see all your settings (in addition to the model).

    Thanks I have added the Cura file to the post.

    You set the "Scaling Factor Shrinkage Compensation" to 60%. Set that back to 100%, and your issue will be fixed.
