Well, there are 2 things that are confusing me:

1. 3D Studio Max tells me that the object that you find attached is 40 cm x 40 cm x 21.6 cm
When I export it in .stl format and open it in Netfabb it says 40 mm x 40 mm x 21.60 mm Shocked why?!?! Shocked Shocked
But it's not over! If i send it to shapeways the system sends me this:


Unfortunately, we were not able to process and thus print your product. The error message was:
Your object has not the correct size.

The size is 4000.00 x 4000.00 x 2160.00 cm / 1574.80 x 1574.80 x 850.39 inch.

Shocked Shocked Shocked

2. I scale down the model in 3ds max till it says that the object has these dimensions:
0.4cm x 0.4 cm x 0.4cm
But now, if i send it to shapeways, everything its ok, exception made for... THE PRICE
5,294.27 € for an empty white plastic box?!?!?!?

That's what it says:



Tell me that i've wrong something, it's impossible that the price is so high...
