Scaling issue in Cura?

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I did a quick test by importing a known-working STL file of 6" diameter. When it was placed in the display of Cura, it came in at less than 1", and needed to be scaled by approx. 10x to reach the proper size. The drawing scale was inches, and I had not seen this issue in other program before.

Thoughts? Will I have to create a generic 1x1x1 cube to set my machine's "scaling default"?

Thanks

Chris
