Hi

I am importing an object from an external program into solidworks. I receive an error that says "model exceeds dimensional limits Use corrects units or scaling in options menu" I have tried just about every unit. The object I am importing was surface created from micro CT scans. The object is only 5mm in diameter and has circular cracks on the surface that are about 10^-4 m. Could the error indicate that the model is too big or too small? I have this problem importing as a surface. When I import as a body I get no figure at all or could it be that it is just too small and needs to be scaled up? I have tried nanometers and microns for units also.
