Can we convert units?

Recommended Posts

I have a file where, when loaded, the part shows up extremely small on the build plate.

The artist who made the part said this is a common problem solved by converting the units in my software. He suggested doing so in Netfab.

I looked around Cura and didn't see a means to do this, unless I missed it?

STLs do not have units. Cura assumes 1 = 1mm.

edit: I'm strictly against a settings which would make Cura interpreting the numbers as barbaric - oops - I meant imperial - units.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
