I was working on a SolidWorks file and converted the file into STL file in order to have a 3D print-job. The part was printed and ended up shrinking by 35.34% of the originally intended size. I used a software called Glovius in order to view, measure and convert my original SolidWorks file. The measurement I got on the CAD when using Glovius was exactly we intended. Then, I converted the file by saving it into STL file. When I sent the STL file for a printjob, I got a shrinkage result.
Would any of you please help me convert the original Solidwork file to a STL file so that there is no scaling error? (note: I do not have the SolidWorks software with me at this time.)
Also, is there a way to measure my object (eg. length from 2 points, etc.) in an STL file? Please advise.
Thank you in advance for your help,
