new to Blender here and I'm trying to make an object of a specific size that I can 3D print. Here's what I'm doing:
- File> New> General, select the cube and delete it.
- Go to the Scene Properties tab and under Units, make sure the system is Metric and length is in mm.
- Add mesh> Cylinder
- In the Add Cylinder box that pops up, change the vertices to 64, radius 20mm, depth 4mm.
This creates an appropriate cylinder, but it's really tiny in the window and I have to scroll in a lot to see it. Once scrolled in, I have about 3 clicks of my scroll wheel before it goes from barely visible, to visible, to now we're inside it. Working with such a small object has been really difficult.
When I export the object as a .stl and open it in Chitubox, the cylinder is so small that it isn't visible. If I click to resize it, Chitubox tells me that the object is 0.04mm(x) by 0.04mm(y) by 0.00mm(z).
What am I doing wrong here?
