Hi. I am new to this forum, and was trying to test a simple design to check cost and quality. The item is a Lego type head drawn in 3ds max and exported as a .dxf document. I then open accutrans and open the file, and it is way out of scale. The original is 3/4" large, but it is saying that the size is way over the maximum. It is the type of item that would fit onto an existing one, so size and fit are very important. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

Hi shmails,

Not sure what is going wrong in your conversion chain. But you can scale within accutrans. Just select "Save with options". You find the scaling factor (default = 1.0) on the right side of the dialog.

Cheers!

Robert
