Shrinking and wrapping

Large object will shrink during printing. Effects are:

  1. No more stick on the heated bead and slides of the bead creating a big spider net of filament

  2. Parts get bended corners

  3. Extruder crashes into the object causing the motors to looses steps or pushing object from the bed

  4. Crack between upper layers when bed has enough temperature to keep bottom layers down
