Import *.STL files at their true scale size in BLENDER

1 0 Beginner
Blender imports STL files at a 0.001 scale because the STL file format does not specify units. This means that the size of an object in an STL file is arbitrary, and it is up to the software that is importing the file to determine the scale. Blender, by default, imports STL files as if they are in meters, which means that a 1 unit cube in an STL file will be imported into Blender as a 1 meter cube. To import an STL file at a different scale, you can use the "Scale" option in the import dialog.
