Trouble with .stl sizing Answered

I'm having trouble with the sizing of the .stl file model. In blender it says that I have everything correct and I've made sure that the scaling was applied but every time I upload it it says that its wicked tiny. I was hoping someone could give me suggestions on how to fix this problem or at least think of something that I haven't thought of yet..

There is a little bug or quirk with Blender when you scale things in object mode as those changes won't count towards the stl file. So whenever you're not getting the proper size, go to Object > Apply > and Scale from the 3D view menu to fix the problem.

I hope that helps. ;-)
