I have just created a model using TopMod, and exported it as an .stl file (www.shapeways.com/model/301956/). How do I specify a particular size for the model. The design now appears to be 0.7 cm. I would like to make it larger.

You will need to scale the object to the correct size, prior to upload.

I'm not familiar with Topmod, but I imagine it has some scaling capabilities?

Actually, TopMod doesn't seem to have scaling abilities. How about meshlab? Is there a way to scale an object within that program? I could import my TopMod models and work from there. I looked briefly at Meshlab, but didn't see a menu item there for scaling an object.

It's "hidden" under "normals, curvature, orientation" -> "apply transform"
