Sure enough, ReplicatorG reads 123D-generated STL files at 1/10 scale

Update: 123D beta 5 uses the proper units for exporting STL files, so the scaling operation is no longer necessary.

As I noted previously, objects in STL files created by Autodesk’s new 123D CAD program are not correctly scaled when loaded into ReplicatorG (at least not for me, I’m using the public beta from a few weeks ago).  Eyeballing it, I guessed the object in RepG was about 1/10 the size defined in the 123D model.

To test this hypothesis, I designed a rectangular prism, 50 mm by 25 mm by 10 mm (yes, the temptation to go 90x40x10 was strong).  Results follow:
