Measuring tool?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Measuring tool?

Hi, just joined to ask this question. Love the software and figuring it out. Is there a possabilty of adding a measuring tool to the cura slicer? it would be nice to be able to measure 1 or 2 key things and then be able to adjust the scale accordingly.

 

Btw, great software with so many options

There are already plenty of free software packages that can do this out there. I am in the camp of making Cura as solid as possible without turning it into a hybrid of some sorts. You already get an overall length, width and height of the object in Cura. I would think that should give you scale in its rawest form.
