How do I adjust steps/mm on UM2?

Recommended Posts

The steps per mm setting is a function of the motor, pulleys and belts. While there can be other factors at play for the extruder, you really shouldn't need to adjust the steps for the x and y axes.

You can get some shrinkage as the plastic cools, and there can be some other things going on that leave the final part fractionally too small, depending on its geometry. But 2mm sounds like a lot. Can you provide some examples of what you are seeing?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
