Help with slicing problem
Hello everyone I am new to the Forum and have been running into some problems. i will create an stl in Inventor and then when i go to put it into slic3r its not the correct size that i made the object, it is really small. i was able to create one gcode for one thing i created and that came out the right size, but after that whenever i open up an stl file it comes out really small and is not the right size. i have gone though and made sure all of the settings are correct on the print area so i know that that is not the issue. in the picture attached the object im trying to print is 6x3x4 so i know that it should almost take up the entire print space but its really really small. i have not tried printing anything yet as i am waiting for my printer to come in the mail. any help is greatly appreciated. thank you.

RE: Help with slicing problem
... this is often an issue when switching between programs with metric or imperial internal units - could be, you have to scale all measures with x25.4 to change fromm mm to inches.

You can rescale in Inventor before exporting it, or in Slic3r before slicing ...
