Posted · Dimensions are of by a factor of 4x

I don't know if this is a BUG I have the following Part I created with Shapr3D on my M2 iPad Pro. It measures in CURA as X34.85mm, 16.7mm Z13.46mm and it says it is scaled to 100% After printing My part measures. X 13.8, Y 6.4, Z 5.32.

    If you save a project (File -> Save project...) and post a link to it here, we can probably tell you if Cura is doing something wrong, or perhaps your printer/firmware.


    It looks like the dimensions are off by a factor of 2.54 though, which would suggest that either you measured in inches instead of mm, or your printer is somehow confusing imperial vs metric units.


    Cura always shows measurements in mm (metric) and produces gcode in metric units.
