Scaling 3D prints

Recommended Posts

Just got a 3D printer and now want to print files from VW14.

These are BIM files constructed using wall, slab, window, door objects etc.

Exporting .STL files into Slicr works fine but the file comes in at 1:1 and needs to be scaled down.

The slicing programme I'm using, Slicr, only allows scaling in full percents - i.e. 1% for 1:100, 2% for 1:50 etc

Consequently it seems I can't print out at 1:200 which would need a scaling of 0.5%

Has anyone found a way round this? Do other slicer programmes have 'fractional percent' scaling?

I'm a big fan of Hatchbox filaments. I primarily use PLA, but I'm getting more into PETG because it behaves more like a hybrid of ABS & PLA and warps less when I leave it sitting in my car :)
