    I guess I wasn’t clear enough.

     

    -If I have a model of a cup that holds 1.45L and I wish to resize it in Cura so that it prints a cup holding 0.6L ; how do I make that calculation? (By hand of course)

    Roughly scale with 0,745 , or more exact, sqrt3 (0,6/1,45)  

    "Tredje roten ur..." in our language 😉

    See, thats the problem, can't even recalling ever heard 'tredje roten ur' 😄 Men alltid kul att läsa lite svenska...

     

    I guess I'm out of my league here, but is that (sqrt3 (0,6/1,45)) the actual formula. I'm mostly thinking of of that 'sqrt3' thingie. Or is this solvable with just multiplying and/or dividing?

     

    *I guess I don't make a lot of sense due to my ignorance. I looked at my calculator and found that sqrt3 function and managed to get the result you gave me so hopefully I can remember this.

     

    Thank you Anders!

    sqrt3 is a bit of a strange name: Whereas sqrt is short for square root, sqrt3 is actually the cube root.

     

    Square root of a value is the inverse function of square of a value: sqrt(value * value) = value.

    Cube root of a value is the inverse function of the cube of a value: sqrt3(value * value * value) = value.

    Newbie tutorial (written with myself in mind):

     

    On your calculator type in the following:

    0.6

    /

    1.45

    And now press button marked in image below

    I didnt know the phrase in english so thanks for the lesson. 

    (Even though math are considered to be the common language of the universe 😄)

     

    Cube root what was I was looking for, hence writing it in our native language too...

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
