Scaling Problem with Sketchup 8 and Exporting


I've been having scaling issues when trying to export a Sketchup 8 file to an STL file for printing to a Makerbot Replicator. Which is the correct export unit to select during the export process? The models I am trying to print are scaled down in inches when working in Sketchup. Any guidance would be HIGHLY appreciated!!!!!!!!!!


Makerbot Units

Hi there, I just had a look over at - I think the replicator software expects units to be set to millimeters - this would explain why your model is being scaled down. Try setting the export units to millimeters. You can also alter your model's units within Sketchup - go to Window->Model Info.

Good luck!
