Objects scaled wrong and show very tiny in Cura

Recommended Posts


A friend of mine gave me some STL files of something he would like me to print

When I open them in Cura, they are extremely small (like 1.3mm) and should be much bigger.

He put me in touch with the designer and he advised using NetFabb to fix the scaling or wait til he gets back to me with the corrected files.

I've seen this happen a few times before.

Is there a Best Practices or some tips how to fix this in Cura (or Netfabb)?
