Hi Kenneth,


I moved your question to another thread because I don't think it really related to the 'Ask me anything', about quality control and assembly. Could you explain a little bit more what you mean? resize a model in Cura? From what size to what size?

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.
