I have moved forward with the whole .max thing. Its on the back burner. But not as critical now. I have found a sketchup model of the model I want. But it is ridiculously small (0.17 m long by 0.10 m wide!). How do I enlarge it to fit my dimensions as a whole?

Thanks

    $\begingroup$ You could try the scale function (try s on the keyboard). There's probably a metric conversion issue, so try applying the 25.4 rule to your model. If the model is in mm, but your environment is in inches, then multiply by 25.4. If reverse, divide by 25.4. $\endgroup$ – tbm0115 May 11 '16 at 14:13

    $\begingroup$ I would not consider 0.17m (=17cm) to be ridiculously small. That's pretty large for 3D printers. The ".max thing" seems wholly irrelevant to the question. $\endgroup$ – Tom van der Zanden May 11 '16 at 14:29
  • $\begingroup$ I included the .max thing because the original model I wanted was in .max format, but I found the same model in a sketchup model. $\endgroup$ – GipsyD May 11 '16 at 14:59

    $\begingroup$ You're right. 17 cm is quite large for printing. I wanted to upscale the model because it is uncomplete. $\endgroup$ – GipsyD May 11 '16 at 15:00
