I uploaded an object file and would like to know how I can adjust the size of the object to calculate the price. The default size is 4cm high and i would like to have it printed in 10cm high.

You can check your model with a free tool called Netfabb,


This program can check your STL/OBJ file, but also fix and rescale the model.

You can find more information here:
