scale Cura 4.13.1


Recommended Posts

Posted · scale Cura 4.13.1


Excuse my bad English I am French.
To print all my models as accurately as possible I have to scale to 100.5% with Cura 4.13.1 .

By default Cura has a scale of 100%.
Is it possible to modify this default value so as not to forget (which happens to me) to resize the model?
Thank you

    This has been talked about here recently.  I think if you search for "shrinkage" or "scale factor" you may come up with something.

    One of the settings that is "hidden by the active machine" is "Scaling Factor Shrinkage Compensation" which would seem to be what you are looking for.  (I think it would need to be a function of the Material you are using?)

    @nallath of the Cura Team may comment on that.

    Edit:  One of the settings under "Preferences | Configure Cura | General" under "Opening and Saving Files" is "Select Models When Loaded".  Checking that should make a tool on the left side popup (probably the last one used?).  At least you would have a reminder to set the scale and maybe the Z location.
