scale in the red ?

Recommended Posts

Im testing a new archicad building model which i hop to print with ultimaker.

the building is built to 1:1 scale and there for is a little big.

I cleaned it up with netfabb and then just dropped it into my office copy of skeinpypy. getting the latest cura installed today !

anyway, brought in the stl and went to 3d model, types in .002 to have my model print at 1:500 scale (my desired goal) and skeinpypy said its not a good idea to have any thing smaller than 0.01

my question is, do i really have to back track and scale my model down ? or will skeinpypy or cura just accept my down sized model with 1:500 scale and work ok ??

Thanks guys and especially Daid !!

Ian :D

Don't worry about it. You can print fine at 0.002 scale, and Cura no longer has this message. (it will also allow you to slice, even with a red error)
