Parts 5% larger than they should be

Ross 2020-5-6 1332

I'm using Chitubox V1.6.3 with an Anycubic Photon (not an S) and all the parts sliced in Chitubox are coming out roughly 5% too large. Parts sliced in the Photon's own Workshop software are correct size, but they have other issues.


My setting are as follows:


Res X: 1440px, Y: 2560px

Lock Ratio: Off

Size X: 65mm, Y: 115mm, Z: 155mm

Build Area Offset: Off

Machine Type: AnyCubic Photon

Mirror: LCD_mirror


Layer Height: 0.020mm to 0.050mm - occurs with any setting

Bottom Layer Count: 8

Exposure Time: 15s

Bottom Exposure Time: 60s

Light-off Delay: 1s

Bottom Light-off Delay: 1s

Bottom Lift Distance: 5mm

Lifting Distance: 5mm

Bottom Lift Speed: 120mm/min

Lifting Speed: 180mm/min

Retract Speed: 180mm/min


Anti-Aliasing Level: 8


Anyone got any ideas what's wrong?


Thanks,


Ross.

    Similar problem here.
    Dimensions are not correct
    I'm unhappy!

    Is it a printed result or a sliced result, is there a photo? Can you send your questions to support@chitubox.com?

    Agreed Creality LD-002R has the same issue,

    Wasted so much resin trying to reduce exposure to reduce swelling but nothing?!

    If you print a multi part print with pegs and holes that are supposed to fit together they never do?! And this is even with gambody high res files

    This is a problem with the lack of size compensation or "overgrowth prevention" I truly hope they add this functionality into the application, or perhaps the pro version. Without, I doubt it will be a useful platform for size-sensitive model production.

    i have the same problem. I managed to correct the exernal dimensions but not the internal by applying the correct build area. There is something wrong with the software!

    has this been addressed in the latest version of Chitubox?
