.STL File import and sizing question

Postby tankerzuke » Tue Aug 28, 2018 6:35 pm

Hello! I just bought some .STL files of 3D objects and was able to import and open them in my Vcarve Desktop but can anyone point me to some good training on how to size them for what I need? One is a very cool clock but can't figure out how to adjust the settings so it is a good height and width etc. When I tried and thought it was set and hit OK a small corner of it showed and was ginormous lol! Thanks

Thanks, will it work the same between desktop and Pro? I have desktop and the file you shared says pro so I'm just curious

There's no difference between the two versions at that level. This page explains the differences - https://www.vectric.com/products/compare.html
