Hi, someone made a pretty small 3D pentagon shape for me, and while its pretty much perfect, the measurements are making sense to me.

Each side on the pentagon has to be 1 3/4ths of an inch but when the shape is uploaded, the measurements are coming up much closer to 2 inches.

I can't get a hold of the guy right now and I was just wondering if anyone knew what the problem could be. I was told it was made using inches as the units but have tried all the other units available on the site and still no luck.


There's a link to the file itself if that helps.

Thanks for any help guys.
