Hey Guys,

I am a total noob. I have a wanhao di3, and cure didnt work well for me - I bought this software and it works excellent!

However I have a question. Yesterday I printed a thumbwheel for my printing bed
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:874155

depending on the settings, the objects are never same thickness.
For example 25% infill or 50% infill increases the size
and changing the infill to honeycomb also increases the size.

From my understanding the objects should result in the same size, right?

Iam sure this can be covercome by a setting or something, maybe someone experienced can give a hint?

Perhaps you are over-extruding? In that case, using a higher infill percentage would cause more over-extruded plastic, which will cause the object to grow slightly
