    When I load the test file into the Slic3r program it is very very big. Is that normal?

    What measurement system was it modeled in? What measurement system was it imported in?

    I dont know. I downloaded it straight from Vicious website and dropped in into the Slic3r software that was recommended to download and I set that up based on recommendations from the site. I have a total build area of 30X30X8 inches. i have my software set as a 16X12X8 inch work space because that the sheet of glass size i am using for now. based on that this test piece would be almost 10 inches tall. seems something is wrong. i just dont know what. I dont even know what that piece is supposed to be testing lol.

    That is not one of my parts.

    Try something like this, http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:53668, so you know exactly how big it is and it is easy to print.

    My slic3r settings are only a starting point, and only work if you are using the mk8 extruder that I use. Any deviation from my recommended parts and all sorts of things could go wrong.

    Everything i have is from you. Hell if you sold filament i would buy that from you also lol. I just though that the part would be a lot smaller.

    I have no idea what part that is. Try the calibration part I linked and we can narrow down the issue.

    I did and I had a friend with your system come by and help. Dont know what it was but i think he have it somewhat fixed. The part i took a pic of is what your page links as a test piece at the end of http://www.vicious1.com/import-extruder/

    The attached is a screen shot of the test part gcode. I just downloaded it and double checked. It is the old corner clamp.

    So everything else seems good now?
