I want auto scaling turned off.

Recommended Posts

I have just noticed for the first time that if you put a part on the bed in Cura 15.06, if the part is too large, the part is automatically scaled to fit the bed. You get no indication that this has happened, and checking the scale box shows that it is currently scaled at 100%. The scale tool should at least show you how much the object was scaled to get it to fit. I really want to turn this auto scaling off as it is inherently dangerous. You may have a part that would just fit on the platform, but would not know that it had been scaled to fit there. Not good when you are creating parts that have to mate with others.

Is there some way to turn this auto scaling off?

Thanks in advance.

Most annoying thing about cura for me!

I never know if it's scaled or not and I always need the correct dimensions!

At least a short message "Your object has been scaled" would help. Or an option to turn fit to build plate off.

My UM2 Ext. is atm just a waste of filament, energy and time...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
