Is there a way to verify the size of your uploaded 3d model (bounding box and volume)

It was difficult for me to find a way to verify the size of my model after I uploaded it.  With scaling inconsistencies from 3d program to 3d program and unit discrepencies, it's pretty important to double check this after upload.

Hi Shawn!

Currently the only way to check the size of your model is with our rather small scale in the thumbnail image. The larger segments represent inches, and the smaller segments centimeters.


We definitely agree that something more concrete would be useful! We hope to implement something that shows bounding box sizes in the near future :)

Hi, I cannot see this size event on the thumbnail, could you tell me the size of my model, I guess nobody will buy it without knowing the size... My model is http://www.ponoko.com/design-your-own/products/triangle-impossible-...

Hi Patrick - could you send the file through to us by using the 'Submit a Request' tab? Also let us know what units you used.

We can confirm the dimensions at this end. Cheers!
