Custom Parts seem small

Post by camais » Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:36 pm

Hey, I attempted creating a support bracket for my bookshelf. The part was designed to be 55x30x12 mm. However, when I load it into Repetier, the part seems way too small, especially compared to other existing parts I have made. Anybody know what I might be doing wrong?

When I load it into Netfabb, each dimension is one tenth of what you said they should be.
It appears that your scaling is off by one tenth on whatever program you used to produce this part.

I see this when models are created using a centimeter scale instead of a millimeter scale.

Thats odd... I used Autodesk Inventor and made sure to select mm parts. Well at least I know the easiest fix is to scale x10 it in repetier.
Thanks guys :)
