    hi, it's been a while since i last came here but i think i'm close to realize a small project, anyway, last time i asked how to scale my models to measure them exactly in CM but i can't find the original post. you know how i can trace my own started topics? can't find the option anywhere. Thanks!

    Did you happen to change your username? I don't see any old messages from you.

    Rather than desiging in CM, may I suggest that you model in MM. That way, no scaling or conversion is necessary when you upload to Shapeways.
    But, if it's more convenient for you, model in CM, then use Netfabb Basic (free) to upscale the model by a factor of 10, then upload as millimeters to Shapeways.
