[ADDED] independent axis scaling

Sun Jan 26, 2014 5:12 am

Unless I missed it, currently it is only possible to scale the model globally with a fixed aspect ratio.

Can we get the option to scale each axis independently? When adjusting for ABS shrinkage for example I find 1% works well in X and Y but isn't required in Z... in some tight tolerance parts the fact I have to scale Z as well means it doesn't fit well.

I would also very much like to see this added.

This is still not in the 2.0 version. It would be very useful, and seems easy to add.

MakerWare has this functionality and it is awesome! You can use it to shrink one axis and not bother the others. I use it all the time to make things like block letters larger in the X and Y direction but not super thick like they would be if I increased all axis.

Generally I bump up the scale to 200%, then I uncheck the "Uniform Scaling" box in MakerWare and bring the Z-Axis back down to where I want it. Again, this seems like a pretty easy thing to implement, but also very powerful for making simple size modifications to our designs.
