Calibration model out of scale

Post by adamj12b » Mon Dec 16, 2013 9:24 pm

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post. I have had my new Up! Plus 2 for just over a week now. Im really happy with it. Nice and easy to get printing.

I have run the calibration model to check out how everything was. It ended up being slightly off. After figuring out that the calibration only compensates for out of square errors by applying an offset angle, I realized my parts are being printed over sized. The outside dimensions of the calibration model should be 96mm and the corner to corner should be 124mm. Well when I print it im at 124 and change. If I scale the entire model in X and Y by 0.9947 I get a model that is 124.01mm corner to corner.

It seems as thought the print bed is not properly calibrated with the correct steps per inch/cm. Is it possible to apply a scale calibration to the printer?

Thanks for any advice avaiable.

-Adam
