Thank you. I had the Shrinkage/Scale set to 110%, which explains the 10% increase, I think. I will have to reprint to confirm this after figuring out how to fix the print came out not square. I was trying to fix the wall line separation problem and I thought increase it by 10% helps the wall line overlap each other.Edited by newbie3d
There are a few settings that can effect the final size of a model but a 10% increase should be easy to find in the settings. In addition, the Cura preview will show your model at the printed size.
With all the settings visible, look at the Horizontal Expansion numbers and in the Material section look at the Shrinkage numbers.
At the beginning of the gcode are the Maximum and Minimum numbers of the print. These include the skirt/brim but with a calculator and some patience you can get the model size from those numbers. You could slice the model with Bed Adhesion turned off and then check those numbers. The width should be 5 inches minus (1) line width.
The problem can also be on the printer side, but that's a very, very low probability as the XYZ steps/mm pretty much never need to be changed.
