Hi, I'm brand new to 3D printing and Shapeways, and am trying to load a model. I loaded an obj, selected mm, and get the following message:

We're unable to process this file. Check your file for errors and click 'Update File' to upload a new version.

Automatic rescale failed. Model is not within acceptable bounds in any unit. When rescaling to units in:
- millimeter, model is 142 x 290.67401 x 14.5571 m
- inch, model is 3606.80005 x 7383.11963 x 369.75034 m
- meter, model is 142000 x 290674 x 14557.10059 m

Those dimensions for mm seem like they should be fine...I plan to print in steel and those are within the bounding box limits.

This is a Meshmixer export, if that helps.

These sizes are in Meters. Scale the model down in Netfabb by 1000

Yep, I finally saw that the units at the end was m, not mm. Derp! Thank you!
