Inventor files one tenth the size.

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded to Cura 3.4 but I was having the same problem with 3.1  I had been using Inventor 2016 to make my 3D models and exporting .stl files.  I remember I had this problem before and it was a simple checkbox or something like that but that was 3 years ago and I don't remember what it was or where to find it.  When I model something in Inventor(3 years ago in 2016 and fixed it) now the same thing is happening in the 2019 version of Inventor I just updated to. 

No matter whether I use inch or mm the .stl comes in one tenth the size 25.4 mm ( or 1 inch)  is 2.5 mm in Cura 3.1 or 3.4.  I recall there was a very simple fix but I can't recall what it was.  And no it was not make everything 10 times bigger. 

The fix was in Inventor as I recall because the same thing happened in Ideamaker and other 3D slicers.

    • "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.
