Sizing issue

Posted · Sizing issue

I've been printing for some time now and lately if I load a STL file in, I'm getting a message ( and seeing the print) auto scales 10000x. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?


Thanks for your help, this will make things a lot easier!

    I think if the print is smaller than a certain size it scales it up by that amount.  which is usually too much.  But I suspect your print's are in being saved into STL files in inches but Cura is expecting mm.  Try scaling the parts up by 2540% or instead when you go to save the STL there should be an option somewhere to set the units to mm.


    By the way I think it's 100X (not 10000X).  I think its 10000% (which is 100X).  I'm not certain.


    There's also an option in Cura Preferences to disable this feature but then your part may be too small to see.
