This question already has an answer here:
A collegue of mine has created a model with SketchUp and I want to import it into blender now. He created several formats from the model(*.3ds, *.dae, *.obj) which I can import. However, I always do not seem to get the correct dimensions for the objects after the import. Also, depending on which format I choose to import, the dimensions are different.
So, there are two options now. Either, the dimensions get broken when he does his export. Or Blender fails to import correctly.
How can I rule out the second option? How do I import respecting the dimensions of the object from either *.3ds, *.dae or *.obj?
The current situation when importing from *.ds looks like this: One of the models should have dimensions of about 2,10m length and 1,10m width. In Blender's object mode:
Why are the dimensions so different? Even the ratio of the sides is off in object mode.
edit: When I import from *.dae the dimensions in edit mode are correct but not the ones shown in object mode. What is the difference between the two in the first place?
