I've recently uploaded my first project, (It's private) it's of a coin. The coin is 4mm thick, and while uploading I select MM as the scale, but when it's finished uploading the product is shown in inches instead. (Not in correct scale, it WAS 50mm wide, now it's 4inch wide (twice the size))

I'm at a loss as to what I should do, I've obviously screwed up somewhere down the line

Edit: "(rescaled during upload to current size)" For all my attempts as uploading in the MM scale, how do I prevent this? It meets the minimum requirements for thickness, I don't understand why it would automatically change the scale like that... Is it because the _face_ of my coin is less than 3mm? the coin itself is 3.5mm, with the face extrusion (and edges) .5mm on top of that. Is that the problem, does _every_ step have to be over 3mm?
