Unit scaling of 3D Print Toolbox doesn't work correctly
Open, NormalPublic

Short description of error
If Unit setting is used in scene settings the resulting .STL export isn't scaled correctly

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • use standart cube scene
  • go to scene settings and set unit preset to "centimeters" (Metric, Unit Scale: 0.0100)
  • export the cube as .stl using the 3D Print Toolbox with scene scale setting enabled
  • check the file with OpenSCAD or Netfabb free and find the cube to be 0.02mm instead of 20mm
  • repeat for other scalings

Question - Did Cura have "Automatic scaling for small objects" turned off?
Just a sanity check.
