3DS MAX to Cura to UM2 Questions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · 3DS MAX to Cura to UM2 Questions?

1. Units in 3DSMAX to Cura? If I have a model of something in MAX (a simple box for example 5unitsx5unitsx5units) and I want to send it to Cura (as an STL) to be built at a height 5"x5"x5"... what unit settings does Cura expect in the STL to build something this (precise) size?

2. In other words, if I'm sending Cura an STL file (exported out of MAX), what would the units in MAX need to be setup to, to come over to Cura and be the right size when printed 5"x5"x5"?

Thanks!

I use metric (millimeters) and 1 unit = 1mm

check on "respect system units in file"

Models come out accurate and true in cura.

Thanks to all for the tips!

With MAX set to mm, the models are now coming across the pipeline in the correct size.

Thanks again.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
