Hi

Am trying to upload the attached file, but keeps telling me it is too small, but have checked its size in Google Sketchup and Meshlab and it seems big enough.

Any help/suggestions?

Dave

Hey there,

Looks like it is too small by a factor of 10
I measure it as a total length of 1.97mm

Try scaling it up in whatever software you are using.

Cheers

The best suggestion I can give is grab yourself a free copy of NetFabb Basic and use the measuring tools to check and double check your intended dimensions. If the dimensions are out, use the scaling functions to get your model to the right dimensions.

Thanks for the replies. For some reason if i export from Google Sketchup to Meshlab and convert to STL file this seems to be causing problems.

However if i just export from Sketchup as a dae file, it seems to work so will just do this until it goes wrong again. Am new to 3d design and printing so could always be something i'm doing wrong. Very Happy

Same exact problem here - thanks for the suggestion to upload the .dae file, that works!
