I create the piece Solid Edge and I export to * .stl , however , when I open the part in Repetier , it is much bigger than the one I did in Solid Edge. What is the problem?

It may be a difference in export/import units. Have you meaured the size difference? Does the difference come out to some conversion factor that may be the difference between metric and inch units?

I created the file in ISO Metric.par.
I exported it to * .STL with the options:
Binary.
Conversion tolerance: 0.01
Millimeters

Hi @Pakito,

 

What about the import settings on the Repetier program?....would seem like it is seing the units differently than those SE is sending.
