Choosing the right scale and impact of change

      Hi, I’m new here, so I apologize in advance. I have a dilemma: I have a large part of older figures in the size of about 20 mm. But today the games have a standard 28 mm, which I assume is size E here. What advice would you give to a scale so I can use models for both types? Will it be F or leave it on E? And please is there any recommendation for size conversion? I assume that when I print from E to F, I will reduce everything to 80%. But will everything work even after the reduction (openlock, strength of the building, loss of details…)?

      Thanks a lot.

      I assume this is for the OpenLOCK tiles, which have each of the tiles set with 1″ grids on them, so going from an E to an F wont change much. You are better to scale down by probably 10%, you wont lose any details in doing so and as long as you print the OpenLOCK clips at the same scale everything will work fine.
