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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
