Instead of loading the .wrl file in Meshlab to scale it, I found I could add a line to the .wrl file to scale it.

This is the top few lines of the SketchUp vrml export:


#VRML V2.0 utf8
Transform {
rotation 1 0 0 -1.570796
children [
Shape {


I just add a 'scale' line after the rotation:


#VRML V2.0 utf8
Transform {
rotation 1 0 0 -1.570796
scale 0.0254 0.0254 0.0254
children [
Shape {


SketchUp uses inches as it's internal unit. Shapeways uses meters as its default unit. So this line produces the model in the correct scale.

Need to update this...


The Transformation is only in the .wrl file if the "Use VRML Standard Orientation" option has been used.
