Scale and size. Does size matter?
The Spadgent posted a topic in 3D Printing BasicsHi guys. I have been around BM for a few years now but am super new to 3D printing. @hendie and @TheBaron made me do it. I do know 3D modelling (3D studio Max) really quite well but have a few questions I hope the hive mind might help with. I set my max units to CM as this is the scale I’ll work with on most projects. My work setting is in M. I build a test cube to the correct scale of 1cm and brought it into Chitu box. ( I have a Mars 2 pro ) on import the file was called out for being too big and I had to re scale. This can be done in chitu box but surely the scales should be in sync? I reset transforms on the asset before exporting to an .OBJ. Also is .OBJ the best file format to move between programmes? Thanks for any help. Johnny.
