I made a thing in sketchup that I want to 3d print. When I use the measure tool, everything is spot on. For example, the longest span of the object is 141 mm.
But whenever I try to upload an export (STL, but it also happens without other formats) onto a print webservice, the dimensions are all messed up.
I checked the STL export in Netfab, which says the longest span is 1759.89 mm. When I upload it to 3dhub, it reports a similar 1760 mm. I tried rescaling the longest span back to 141mm (using Netfabb), but with fixed aspect ratios the other dimension are then completely off. Something’s not quite right it seems: both the dimenions and the scale dont export well.
I used the ‘mm’ setting in the STL export dialogue, and tried both ASCII and binary export.
I really look forward to my first 3d printed object, but I need some help figuring this out. Thank you in advance.
