Problem scaling model

Cura ver 4.5.0


Try to scale model with different figures for X Y and Z but changing Y or Z  makes the other change !!.

Snap and uniform scaling are off.

Example X= 88  Y =44  will set Z =44 also. Tries with changing Y and Z and the other one is also changing!!

Not what I want.

    Hi Josnoww,


    I can confirm the issue, with deactivated uniform scaling:

    When I  adjust the Z percentage the X percentage changes.

    When I adjust the X percentage the X mm AND the Z percentage changes too without changing the Z mm.


    When I change the X mm value both the X and Z percentages change.

    When I change the Z mm value only the X percentage changes.


    The only values working correctly are the Y fields


    I have this behaviour with every stl file.

    entering the values in mm is the only way to get the settings right
