Print Larger (22%) than STL Model with Scale set to 1.00

Posted · Print Larger (22%) than STL Model with Scale set to 1.00

Just got a new computer, added Cura, Updated the firm ware. Created a model printed the model, and noticed that it was around 1.2375% larger than the STL. In cura it is stating the correct major OD which is 80mm but it is printing much larger.

I have not added any scaling.

Currently running the newest Cura with the newest firmware.

This also occurred with the newer cura and the older firmware. (I updated the firmware since I thought this may fix said problem). STL created with Solidworks 2015.

The next could be something with the STL, but as in cura it is stating the correct size so I am unsure what could have all of a sudden started causing this problem.

It maybe something simple, instead of me playing around for a few hours I will ask here in the hopes someone else had something similar.

Any ideas??

    Something could be wrong with the firmware settings (which are not reset on a new firmware install). Specificly the X/Y steps per mm.

    You could try a "reset to factory defaults" on your UM2. To see if that solves the issue.

    I ended up doing just that right after I wrote the post. I wasn't able to do a test print until today but the print was a success!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
