Objects Shrinking in Vase Mode

Recommended Posts

Posted · Objects Shrinking in Vase Mode

Hello, I am trying to print a traffic wand for some flashlights using vase mode in Cura. When ever I try to print it  using vase mode the item shrinks  by approximately  9% . Taking the wall thickness into account the item should print  with an outside diameter of  41.8mm but in Vase mode in comes out at 38.2mm.  If I print the object in normal mode it prints at the correct dimension of 41.8mm.  The shrink factor compensations are all set at 100%. The scale factor on the model shows as 100% with the correct dimensions so I do not think I did anything to the scaling of the model either.

I am using Cura 5.3.0 and printing on an Ender 3 V2.


Does anyone have any ideas how to correct this? I know I could manually upsize the scaling until I get a good print but I would prefer to find out what is causing the problem.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
