Scale the model in your slicing software to the desired size. Note:scaling too small will start to lose detail.
The images shown were printed at 9.4cm (3.7″) along the longest edge and four corner pieces would enclose a square of 13.8cm (5.43″).
The flat nature of the design is very unforgiving of an uneven build plate. It is essential to have a really level build plate, especially if printing four corners in one print.
I avoided warping and the corners lifting by stepping down my build-plate temperature. Starting at 80°C to get good adhesion for the base, then stepping down to 50°C after layer 5, 40°C after layer 10 and switching off the build plate heating completely after layer 15. Simplify3D allows you to set this up, I am not sure if all slicing software has the ability to set these step points. You may be able to control this manually from the printer’s control panel during printing.
