I've looked through the forum & couldn't find this - so I figured I'd submit this as a new feature request:
- Add "Scale X%" / "Scale Y%" / "Scale Z%" modifiers to "Dimensional Adjustments".
On the button bar menu is a function "Scale models (E)". In the dialog box that opens up is an option "Change scaling". This is perfect for creating a product that is 100% up to dimensions.
Most printers will have minor displacement differences (which can indeed be corrected in the firmware, if you have access to it), caused by various reasons. This scaling tool is very capable to correct these differences in the slicer.
The differences on my printers are so minimal, that mostly I don't need to correct the model: it's only 0,2 to 0,4 mm what I lose here & there, depending on the dimensions - most products aren't bothered by that. And for those where do need the extra accuracy, I implement the scaling factors that I determined for it. But wouldn't it be great, if I could include these scaling factors permanently in the printer's profile?
Such "permanent scaling" modifiers would then need to be separately configurable for each axis.
I'm aware that, in the "Other" tab, is a setting in the "Dimensional Adjustments" section, that allows you to add a horizontal size compensation. As I noticed, the value entered here, is then added to *all* dimensions. That's quite different from the result what you'd reach from above scaling option.
