How to resize project plan of laser cut for different material thickness

We make projects mainly for 3,2 mm (1/8 inch) material thickness.
But you have material other thickness?
There is fast and simple method to resize project for your thickness.

Percentage = (New_thickness / Original_thickness) * 100

1) Open project file 3,2 mm
2) Select All elements
3) Scale to X% proporcionally
4) Done!

For material thickness 3,0 mm:
X = (3 / 3,2) * 100 = 94%

For material thickness 4,0 mm:
X = (4 / 3,2) * 100 = 125%

Of cource, dimensions of final product will be decreaced for thiner and increaced for thicker materials.

If you have plan for 3.2 mm. 
But you have slightly thicker material i.e. 3.3 mm. 
Connecting details will be very tightly.

Scale up to 103% and details will fit perfect.
