I need help scaling of an extruder main body. When the STL is imported into AutoDesk 123, the size is really huge.

The thickness of the shoe top and bottom needs to be 13mm, see picture below:

I've attached the original STL here (common creative license from https://github.com/Xssink/Iron_12X12).

Shapeways upload errors out saying the size of the object is too large.

How do I scale it?

Get netfabb studio basic from netfabb.com, then use its "Scale" and "Export" functions in the "Part" menu.

Thanks! It looks to be the right dimensions to me. I'll export it from netfabb and upload the model.
