This was my first import of an stl file. Went back & read the Aspire reference manual. I should have converted to inches, etc. Now it only takes 1 hr for the roughing toolpath (1/4") & 9hrs on the finish path (1/8"ballnose). Sorry for the panic.

It needed to be 600x400 x 14"thick
You can scale it down to a more realistic size. I usually scale the Z to the material thickness and let X & Y do what they may, then adjust X & Y to what I need.

Did the bears a couple of years ago, wanted a big one for my own wall for a long time so used 4inch cedar and cut it 4ftx6ft in size, was a long cut non stop, 109 hours using a 1/8 bit.
