Hey I am new here and I'm genuinely exited for the possibilities of this site, especially as I've been cg modelling since the 90's.

However i spent a good 10 plus upload tries yesterday trying to get the model to upload right. The model will upload and it doesn't have the usual issues like manifold or normals the wrong way round or leaking.

My problem is that the model is way too large , larger than the size i built it. and however hard i try to shrink it down and upload it again the model remains the same size...? Parts of the model are also in a different place expanding the bounding box out and causing materials to be unavailable even though i originally built it in a 10x10 cm grid. I've even cut the model bits into two files , but I'm still getting size issues. after hours of trying I think its time I asked you guys
