Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

I am sure it won't work if the thread isn't aligned with the Z axis. Wrong! Just printed a M4 tap along the X axis. tScale=1.08 and it worked like a charm. So much for that. Anyhow, I'm going to continue and try implementing the hScale part for ISO4017 and ISO4032 so that they properly fit into wre...
