SAE to metric, how?

Recommended Posts

Posted · SAE to metric, how?

I just spend dozens of hours designing an assembly in SAE using Fusion360. I just loaded the first part in Cura only to find that slicing in SAE does not seem to be an option.  I installed the BarbarianPlugin but am not sure how to "activate" it or if it will even work. Any ideas? redrawing the entire assembly in metric is not an option. If I can't do it with Cura is there another program that I can use?

Nevermind. I was not aware that Fusion360 does the conversion automatically if I switch the units to mm. So if anyone else has this issue, here is your answer.

The barbarian plugin can be activated by the extensions menu.

I build models all the time in SAE using SolidWorks, and there is not issue importing the model into Cura that way.  Most of the programs internally convert between one or the other system, and probably use one system natively.
