    I'm struggling to get a file exported correctly. I have a Robo 2 and I'm using SketchUp Pro 2018. I've created a file that I worked up using the inches and feet template. When I export and print, I get a micro version of what I thought I created. When I make the file in the meters template I get an oversized version.

    What am I missing?!!!

    I've uploaded my latest file if that's helpful.

    You can't use SAE for printing.
    Export in metric.

    Or scale your model by 25.4 :)

    3D printing is metric*.





    *by that I mean all slicers default to metric and some will only work well in metric

    Thanks Mark. That was it. I recreated the file using the metric template and it looks like it is printing to size. I appreciate your response and wisdom.
