      Hello again, Guys.

      I discovered this morning when I tried to save a transom frame as a .part file so I could use it as a template for other frames, that when I imported back into the model, it was many times smaller and located at a different place. It appears that the feature is downscaling the part for some reason, because when I tried saving the entire model as a part, it also reloaded much smaller. The “part” version seems to be anchored to the original origin, just scaled smaller.


      Help, please!

      An update on this problem.

      First, the scaling issue seems to affect the .part import function. I determined this by the fact that when I tried importing parts created more than six months ago—and which imported satisfactorily back then—they now exhibit the scaling problem.

      The precise scaling ratio is 1/3.2808. This is reflected in the object’s z- and x-dimensions, as well as its x- and z-displacements from the model origin. I didn’t test the change in y-dimensions, but assume they show the same issue.

      Hope this will help with troubleshooting.

      Hi Terrance,

      The latest version of DELFTship works slightly different with units- and 302808 looks suspiciously like a Meters to Feet conversion. I will check if we accidentally ignore the units of parts, assuming you did not change system recently?
