Stl file not giving correct measurement?

I converted my Solidworks part into a .stl file through eDrawings, but I couldn't do measurements on the .stl file in eDrawings despite checking the option to allow measurements when saving the Solidworks part. I opened the .stl file in MiniMagics 2.0, and the measurements are about 5x smaller than what they should be. Does anyone know what's up with this?

a workaround by scaling the part to be 1000x bigger using the Scale function

I too am running into a situation where the STL file exported from Edrawings is smaller than it should be. In your case it's probably better to export directly from Solidworks -> STL & skip the extra step of using Edrawings, but I still haven't figured out why the Edrawings export is the wrong scale.
