Posted · design of component shrinks in size while opening it in CURA

I designed a component in a software, and exported it in a appropriate extension used by CURA. when i opened this file in cura, the size of component was really tiny, it looks like it automatically scaled it to smaller size. In the attached picture the green component is really bigger in design but it shrinks here in the CURA. can somebody point me out, what could be going wrong here? 

 

Thank you!!

    There is also a plugin for Cura (check the Marketplace) called Barbarian Units, which should convert to metric, but I never tried it.
