    Hello!
    really new here!
    I'm uploading my first models and it seams that there is a problems with sizing.
    My original models (3dsmax8) are in the scale of centimeters and mms, but I'm getting e-mails from Shapeways stating that they are to big.
    For example a part that mesures 4 x 2,8 x 1,55 cm when exported, reads as:
    58.1 x 108.5 x 154.5 cm (h x w x d).
    Does someone had the same problem?

    Hello!
    it seems exporting in .DAE and using generic units (not metric) works OK (in 3dstudioMax).
