Models import out of scale
« on: July 17, 2018, 08:23:20 am »

I have only just started with S3D so might be doing something stupid.When I import models into S3D some of the components are out of scale, like tiny locating pins larger than my print bed!I printed a part that looked to be to scale, but when compared to the mating part that I had printed back on Makerware, it was too large.Any ideas?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I don't quite understand the issues here:

1) Are the objects in the 3d file not in the same scale?

2) Are you only seeing a difference, after 3d printing stuff seeing how two parts doesn't match?

3) How much of a difference in scale is this between two parts? 1% or 10%
