in Blender save model to export to OBJ format and Cura reads the file and increases the size 5 to 6 times in xyz

save same model in Blender format,  Cura reads it too small increasing size or file is empty, corrupt etc.

    Are you working in Millimeters? Always work your native file in mm.

    It's better but has this


    Blender set to MM units.... 200MM cube created

    Cura says too small scaling up            size is 5MM scaled up to 2500% 


    Blender same saved cube in OBJ 

    Cura: object too small scaling up         size 0.2   scaled up to 100%


    Before change to MM

    Cura file corrupt etc. or scale up


    Changed to MM

    Cura recognized the object but size is not accurate

    Uninstalled Blender plug-in from Cura No change on before and after


    Some progress is better than none

    Hi community, Is this issue solved already?


    This week I changed over from Cura 4.11 with the Plugin 'Blender Integration' to Cura 5.1.0 and the Plugin 'CuraBlender".


    The above mentioned problem still exists. The models I could easily get from Blender into Cura are in the new situation too small. And on the base plate Cura insert a basic Cube.


    If I convert the model into a .stl file in Blender I get the right size of the object into Cura.


    Why can I use the old Blender Integration Plugin anymore. That worked perfect!!

    Hey @NicovanRossum,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    The blender plug-in is created by an amazing member of our community. 
    I believe he hasn't had the chance to update the plug-in to be compatible with the latest version of Cura. 
    If you ask him nicely in this thread he might be able to help you.

    Good Luck 🤞
