10x10 cube: with or without supports?

Postby robin » Thu Sep 26, 2019 8:55 pm

Hi all,

I forgot if I'm supposed to print a 10x10 cube flat on the buildplate or with supports when trying to test and fine tune the setup. I tried a print flat on the plate and got ~ 10.1 x 10.3 x 9.3 mm. Suggestions?

found a post from Emil after using the right keyword in the search box.

"When you adjust the scale, you should reload the model/scene or restart contour.

Z-height can vary if you place the cubes directly on the build plate. Compression and shrinkage from the extra exposure times.

Lift up the cube on supports if you want to measure the Z accurately."


"Print a 10mmx10mm cube. Then measure it. Enter the values you're getting on the bottom row. The Z can stay 10."
