Trouble scaling 3D Labprint file.

Thought I would see if I could print on a replicator 2. Downloaded a test part from Thingiverse, but it's huge. Is this a mm / inch thing?

I'm not sure of the exact size of the print area on your printer. I can tell you that that the test part from thingiverse didn't fit directly onto my build plate. It had to be rotated 45 deg so that it sat on the build plate diagonally. My i3 clone has a build area of approximately 200x200x200. Cura would allow scaling down of the part. That could cause several issues with electronics (servo, motor) and general fit of parts.

Good luck,

No problemo...

As far as I know all of the 3D LabPrint parts are in mm. If you have your slicer defaulted to inches that would be a problem.
