How to measure my part which is in stl file format?

By luka on 29 Oct 02:47 4 answers 24602 views 4 comments

I want to make an exact 3D CAD model of a fan:
http://www.nmbtc.com/fans/part-numbers/search/2004KL-04W-B50/5019.
I have two 3D scans (front and back) of my fan blades and I can not import the stl files into SolidWorks as a solid body because they are too large.
All I need is to measure the blades (actually one of them, because they are the same) to get the data I need to make a 3D CAD. I tried the way described here http://www.swtuts.com/?p=427 but it didn't work for me.

Can you please help me to get the desired dimensions?

Thank you very much!
