Problems with dimensions when importing
I created something with all the dimensions in inches and exported it as an STL file. When importing it into my 3d printing software (XYZ printing) to print out it shows up extremely small, tenths of a mm small. It notifies me the object it very or too small and offers to convert it into mm with larger dimensions. When I do try to convert it it is then given huge dimensions that take up the entire printer. Why is it doing this and why aren't the original dimensions being kept?
