Autodesk Inventor Files

Postby mrgroark » Tue Feb 14, 2017 10:01 am

I usually create my STL files in Autodesk Inventor. Whenever I do this in order to get the file the actual size I need to scale it up 10x. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I could fix it so I don't have to scale it up?

I suggest going into the options when saving the STL and select the units to be mm from cm.

Here's some pics to help!

Thanks everyone that worked. I just needed to change it in the options menu from centimeters to millimeters
