XY dimensions are incorrect

Post by felich »

Is there a way to calibrate the XY dimensions?
Cura shows the correct dimensions but the print comes out shorter in both x and y directions.
Any ideas?

If the scaling is consistent, you can use a M579 command in config.g to correct for small scaling errors. To check the scaling is consistent, print a large noughts-and-crosses/tic-tak-toe pattern on the bed, and check that the lines are straight.
