About curling : rotating parts 5 in x and y helps a lot, reducing size of
the scanned slice. Anyway, SLS parts are plastic parts and injection
moulding design rules applies : if your parts are correctly designed for
this process, they will not curl much more than if made with the true
process!

for scaling, the open source software ADmesh allows scaling of STL files. I
already wrote a version allowing non uniform scaling. I guess it will be
quite simple to introduce variable scaling.
