    I recently uploaded a model created in Inventor Fusion to SW; it is an STL file, the model was created in milimeters and so I selected milimeters for the model upload.

    After the model uploads, the dimensions are incorrect- see the screenshot below:


    In the foreground is a screenshot of the model in fusion- you can see it is 169mm x 68.37mm.

    Behind that you can see a screenshot of the model in SW, it is only showing the model to be 1.65cm x .0684cm x .09cm

    What is going on- is anyone else having this problem??

    Looks to me as if your software is exporting in cm. My math is fuzzy on Monday mornings, but I think that would cause the results. Try scaling up by 10 before exporting.

    Yup! Fusion has a known issue with exporting and being off by a scale of 10.
