object wider than designed

object wider than designed
July 02, 2012 06:40PM
when I print the joined STL the outside size is correct on my printer (99.98 in X and 99.86 in Y)

but the wall is far wider 5.5 instead of 5mm.

if I print the 20mm cube i got 20 x 20 with a wall of 5.4 x and y direction instead of 5mm

slicer 8.4 nozzle 0.5 layer 0.4

am I the only one with this problem ?

could someone make a try to be sure it is not my printer (even if I can't see a mechanical pb which make the wall larger in all the direction, for all my print)

the curious thing is the outside dimensions are correct so it doesn't look like that's a configuration problem

the backlash seem to be < 0.1 mm in x and Y (tested withe the special print from thingiverse)

with the puzzle stl the 10 mm wide are 10.5mm (x or y orientation) the 25mm are 25.4 the 60 mm is 60.18

the infill is honeycomb 0.3

do I miss something obvious ? do you get the same results ? is it a bug ?

thank you

when i try to print the joined stl 0.5 wide, 0.4 layer nozzle 0.5, infill 0 perimeter 1 i got the attached gcode

when i look at it i can see:

G1 X135.150 Y54.850
G1 Z0.640
G1 F1800.000 E1.00000
G1 X135.150 Y145.150 F1800.000 E3.55497

G1 Z2.040 F5400.000
G92 E0
G1 X135.150 Y145.150

145.15-54.85=90.3 for an inner wall of 90 mm which should be 90.5 as the extrusion width is set to 0.5

the same 149.85-50.15=99.7 instead of 99.5

0.15 more on each side it explain the 0.3 more for the wall size.

look like slicer doesn't take the extrusion width correctly

Yes, a regression is causing objects to be wider by 0.1mm in Slic3r 0.8.4. The fix will be included in the upcoming release.
