Barbarian Plugin Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Barbarian Plugin Question

Hi. Just got Cura and have a question about the Barbarian plugin regarding converting from mm to inches.


It only gives me the option to convert to to metric, but i was under the impression this plugin would allow you to do the opposite.


My model loads into Cura and shows as mm but when i use Barbarian to convert to metric it gets too massive for the printer.


am i missing something?


Is there truly no way to convert "back" to my original model dimensions?

    Cura works in mm, and the Barbarian plugin does not change that (nor is there any other plugin that does).


    If you have a 1" cube, it should become a 25.4mm cube in Cura. The barbarian plugin helps you if the model instead imports as a 1mm cube. Note that a 25.4mm cube is in fact the same ("original") dimensions as a 1" cube, even if its dimensions are shown in mm instead of inches.
