Having an issue with creating sil files and bringing them into a slicing program for printing. My rhino file is set in inches and I will export the model as an .stl. I import it into my slicer and it will import tiny. I will have multiply by 2540 instead of 100. That is a conversion number from inch to cm. What I don’t understand is that other people will send me .stl files done in inches and they will import into my slicer full scale?
Yeah… STL files don’t carry units info and your target software is assuming cm - if there is no setting there, then scale the object before exporting. 2540? 2.54, right?
Ah that is right.
