|COLLADA and units vs same STL not accepted [message #12698] Tue, 11 May 2010 08:09 UTC
I am currently trying to get a model accepted in [mm] but I am stuck.
Piece of history:
1. model created with Sketchup (free version) 7.1
2. exported as COLLADA
3. meshLab to STL
4. AccuTrans checked for errors and fixed in Sketchup in different iterations.
Now the COLLADA is accepted bij Shapeways upload checker, however it pops up in my collection in [cm] iso [mm] and I can't find out where to set the unit of measure or how to change it to [mm]
Curious thing is that when I convert this accepted DAE to STL (non bin), where you can set the unit of measure during upload, it is not accepted with the message: "The fileformat of your object cannot be processed by our software. Please investigate the problem and try again."
This message is quite criptic so I am lost!!
I browsed the forum for several hours but couldn't find a satisfying answer. I know I am not that good in browsing, so if one of you knows where to find the answer is ok for me as well.
I attached both the DAE and STL file.
Any help is welcome I am anxious to get my hands on this part.
Thanks in advance, aefferen
