"The size is 2000 x 1986.4 x 1994.6 ( h x b x d). Our production methods can only produce object up to 950 x 950 x 950 ( h x b x d). Please rescale it to make it smaller."

This is the kind of message you get, when you have submitted an object that is too large in size.
All very informative, except 950 x 950 x 950 what? Inches, millimeters, royal cubits..?
It will be much easier to resize correctly if we know the proper unit :)

I think the size is mentioned in the same unit that your file actually uses.

But 950x950x950 ?that is almost one square meter even with the smallest available unit (mm)

That is HUGE.

You're sure?

I doubt it Wink

I've asked our production guys to check this.
