    Hello.. Ok.. I am having a problem with the attached file.. I have downloaded the body from Thingverse, and will be printing it shortly. But, I can not get the lid above to scale to the right size for this. When I open the STL, it is only like 1.x mm wide. And I can not get it to scale to the right size.. I have tried in Vectric and Freecad.... No luck on either.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Ok.. I am going to give up on this.. I tried F360, and now the body is huge! I give up on scaling.... Just not clicking tonight..

    Use Netfabb to scale it. Where is the attached file by the way?

    I found that importing .stl files into Fusion360 they are 10 times the original size. I use the Scale feature to select the imported model and then enter 0.1 for the new scale and it, so far, always came out the perfect size.
