|How do get your object the right scale? [message #56014] Sat, 27 October 2012 02:20 UTC
I've been trying to export a model from 3D Studio and have it be the same dimensions once it's uploaded to Shapeways.|
I've tried DAE, STL, OBJ, and WRL and I'm having no consistent results.
The object is built to scale in MAX. But when I upload it often gives an error saying it was too big or too small.
I've tried setting MAX's units to MM, CM and M. I've tried picking the matching scale when I upload or even mismatched scales just to see what would happen.
DAE has scale built in while STL and WRL, OBJ and WRL do not.
I've uploaded about 30 times, this can't be good for the server having to check and reject or scale all these failed models.
Is there a magic setting I don't know that will make the file upload correctly?
Does it change from file to file?
