Big dimensions differ while printing

by d000b

recently I started to get wrong sized prints with my Anet A8. I wanted to print some part desinged by me in Autodesk Inventor. Parts size is 10cm x 4 cm. On Y axis I received 103,6 mm. It is a huge error in my opinion. Ive tried to callibrate my printer with 20mm cube. It is very strange that when I move any of axis of my printer using control panel on LCD there is no error. I measured it very carefully. I only get such error during printing.
When I print calibration cube 20 x 20 x 20 [mm] I get 19,9 mm on X and Y and almost 20 mm on Z axis. Ive tried to calculate new value for M92 and I changed them from 100 to 97 on X but nothing changed.
I am using Cura for slicing the object, do You have any idea why on earth something is not working only when I am printing? :) I attached photo of my calibration cube, I know it is not perfect but the quality is ok for me. I just need to print more accurately.
Thank You in advance for You help.

Forgot to switch from 220v to 110v

by Allcars

Hello everyone,

I live in the USA and just finished my build, and I triple checked the wiring and everything looked fine. I plugged my PSU in and I didn't see the LED screen turn on, but I did see a green light in my PSU on, I then went over to the mainboard and there was a heat sink laying on the table, and it was extremely hot. The total time the system was plugged in was around 30 seconds. I then found out, that I should have swapped the voltage switch from 220v to 110v on the PSU.

So the question is, do you think my psu is fried or just the mainboard?
