Scaling a 3DS import

When I import a 3DS file created in another program into SketchUp, the scale is wrong. In earlier versions of SketchUp, my 3DS files imported in the correct scale, so I assume Sketchup changed something. Is there a way to scale a model created in another program?

In the import dialog did you set the units correctly?

When you import a file, there is an option button at the bottom, make sure the units are set properly before importing


Units does not seem to be an option with SketchUp Make 2017. Is this only available in Pro?

you are not supposed to be able to import 3ds files in sketchup make…

I think I read somewhere about a file importing extension… fluid something.

It has a 5 day trial.
