Where did the formula go...

    There used to be something that would allow you to specify how much you wanted to spend material-wise, then it would tell you how to scale your model. Where did that go?

    I don't remember there being anything on the site that did that. However, as a rough rule of thumb, if you halve the size in one dimension, you halve the volume, and thus the cost. So, if you halve the size in all three dimensions, it will be 1/8th the cost. Double the size will cost 8x as much. It won't be exactly that as the cost includes postage etc (and minimum purchase price of $25), but that will give you a rough guide to how cost scales with size.

    it would be nice to put this formula somewhere easier to find? If you're new to the neighbourhood, you won't scroll through the whole blog....
    Thank you
