I’m surprised I’m having difficulty with this but I can’t seem to find the right order of scaling if I want to scale down a component by multiplying a factor.
I built my model in meters. Now that it’s complete, I want the model to be mm for 3d printing. So parts that are 17m in sketchup will be scaled down to 17mm.
In hindsight, perhaps I should have built the model with a template in mm, and simply scaled up a copy of it. But I didn’t learn about this trick from DaveR until after I started the template. I thought it would be no issue if I built it in meters and just scaled the model by a percentage.
Can’t I just multiply my scale by a factor of .001 to change it from meters to mm? I tried opening the component, then scaling, but it won’t let me place “* .001”.
What is the best method for changing my model from meters to mm?
