    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...
