Feature request: scale imported assemblies in XY and Z (by wolfmanjm)
Right now you can do an overall scale of an imported assembly.
However it would be nice if you could could scale specifically in the X or Y or Z axis. Use case is I have made a number of objects that represent the aluminum extrusions supplied by Misumi, I like to import these into assemblies to model things I build. The extrusion models are all made as 100mm lengths but of course when I import them I will need a multitude of different lengths. In openscad I just scale them in Z to get the length I need. Right now I have to create a different file for every length of extrusion I use.

Solution (by Rune)
Hi, I managed to code the individual axis scaling and the export resolution.
Please try it out.
I have some trouble updating the project on
so I have attached the executable.
P.S. Saving/Loading the scaling parameter is not finished yet, I'm working on it

Thanks, I use Linux so would need the source code, once you get your github working let me know and I'll try it.
