Dimensions change with import

IsleofGoughIsleofGough Member Posts: 26
I created a 10 foot cube in Rhino 7 and the dimensions in Rhino are correct at 10 feet per side. When I import this in Onshape, the dimensions increase to a little over 11 feet and I have the  preferences set to the same "foot" units. Is there a way to avoid the rescaling in Onshpae?

    It looks like it is a bug in Rhino import. If I export from Rhino as STEP, it works ok in Onshape. However, importing and exporting back to Rhino does indeed change the scale.

    Please use the "report a bug" option in the Onshape help menu and share the Rhino file with support.
