Rotated Model and Scaling Bug

Recommended Posts

I believe I have found a bug with Cura.  If there is a proper place to send this sort of thing, please let me know.

 

I have found that with my printer and chosen material that I scale the model within Cura to take account of heat shrinkage.  I scale it in the X and Y by 103% and the Z by 100%.  This all works fine when I drop a model on the workspace and uncheck the "Uniform Scaling" in the Scaling window.  I can then adjust the X, Y and Z as expected.  BUT...

If I...

  1. Drop the model on the workspace
  2. Rotate it about the X axis by 90 degrees
  3. Switch to the Scaling window and uncheck the "Uniform Scaling"
  4. Enter 103 into the X% box and the Y and Z stay at 100 as expected.
  5. Enter 103 into the Y% box and press enter.  The Z box gets updated to 103 also.
  6. If I then mouse click on the Z box (with the intent of changing it back to 100) it changes again on its own to 106.09.
  7. If I then brute force it to 100, the Y box drops to 94.26.  Clicking on the Y, it changes to 88.85.

 

If it matters, the model is a 20mm cube with a feature on one face.

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
