Catia V5 to Cura gigantic mesh (.STL)

By richardphat on 02 Apr 01:38 1 answer 0 comments


I have some models in catia which I wish to 3D print. In order to export to cura I would save my files in .stl format. The problem is at the import from Cura, the object seems to be gigantic.

Is there some sort of ratio I need to take in consideration? Or some sort of option from Catia,Cura?

Do note, I have designed the piece which is no bigger than a 9V battery.

Thanks for the help

    Change your graphics performance settings prior to saving as an STL. OR you could Optimise the mesh in DSE and export that.
