Why is my model smaller when sliced

Recommended Posts

Posted · Why is my model smaller when sliced

Hi everyone.

Hope someone can help with my problem. I made a dogs water bowl to go into a corner in tinkercad, no problems done it many times. Export to cura all is well as in photo, slice it, have a look in preview and the bowl has shruk but the grey shape is correct size. Can only print the red preview size not the size of the grey outline. Cannot find anywhere ( Or I am wording it wrong) that can help. 

Many  thanks for reading, hope you have an answer

    You may want to check the "Scaling factor shrinkage compensation" setting.

      • 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.
