Y-Axis Compensation

Postby Casale8 » Wed Dec 20, 2017 9:05 pm

I just noticed my Y-Axis compensation has been set to 100.25% From the factory as I have not ever made changes to this printer and material setting for the Standard N2 V2 Hotend.

Is this correct, and why?

Prints have been fine for the most part, where as this shouldn't be a factor...?

I don't think it is correct, but it is the recommendation from Raise3D, so it is expected :D
The only sensible use of X/Y axis compensation is for material shrinkage compensation (the printed model contracts when cooled down).
The fact that Y is compensated and not X might be because Raise3D found that the model fan is cooling more in x-axis than in y-axis?? - but I don't know the real reason. I always use the same compensation factor for X and Y and only really when printing ABS and for models where accuracy of the dimensions matters.
