Hey guys. I hope someone can help me:

I uploaded a model with a depth of 14 centimeters and a high of 0.5 centimeters. But when I upload it here, it gives me wrong measurements:

Upload with „Inches":
- 25.0 w x 35.5 d x 1.4 h cm
- 9.8 w x 14.0 d x 0.6 h in

Upload with „Millimeters":
- 1.0 w x 1.4 d x 0.1 h cm
- 0.4 w x 0.6 d x 0.0 h in


When I´m uploading it in "Meters", it is too big (of course) to produce.

Can anybody help me?

It looks like your modelling software units are inches.

I'd go for rescaling the model by 0.393700787 and trying again.
