Hi, I use SolidEdge ST6 for designing. When i create a part in solidedge (say a cube) of 30mm dimensions, after saving it in stl format the dimensions in the stl file changes to about 2mm. This is totally wierd. I use netfabb to check my .stl files. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
I am not sure how it is in Solid Edge but I had the similar problem in Solidworks. The problem was that in "Options" the export into .stl was set to Inches but the real model (.sldprt) was in mm. I only changed Inches into mm and everything was ok.
Thank you for the answer but this isn't it. There is no options in Solidedge to change the units before saving.....
sorry, wrong answer. That was different case. Before "Save As" try to change units of your part into Meter/Kilogram/Second. And save it as a .stl. This helped when I imported .stl file into 3ds Max.
No one else has an answer to this? Or any other possible solution to this?
