3.2.1 Selected Model was too small to load

Recommended Posts

So I was just using 3.1 and was merrily slicing away, when I noticed I could download 3.2.1. So I did. Then I tried to load my models into it.

Every single model I try says it's too small to load.

That is all my OBJ files, anyway. STL works fine though. My ancient modeling software doesn't export STL, but OBJ has worked so far without any issues. 

 

Any advice, before I revert back to 3.1?

I've had this happen too. Usually, I get two messages: first a mention that the model has been automatically scaled by 100000% and second the "model was too small" message.

 

To be honest, I wasn't sure if these models worked in 3.1 anyway, so what I did as a workaround is to create a small OpenSCAD file to import the model, scale it up and export it again. 

The OpenSCAD code for this is really simple:

Quote

scale([1000,1000,1000]) import("model.stl");

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
