If you cannot get your design software to do this, though, you can still rescale the part once you have it in MatterControl. View the part in [[3D View]], then enter [[3D View/Edit|Edit mode]] and choose [[3D View/Edit#SCALE|SCALE]] from the bar on the right. A drop down menu offers many common conversion factors, or, axis dimension specifications can be entered directly in the appropriate fields.
== I have a RoboROBO 3D printer. Where did the option for Automatic Print Leveling go? ==
You are probably getting confused about the different kinds of print leveling that are available. Your Robo has hardware leveling which allows it to probe the height of the bed before each print. Other printers don't have this feature, so for them MatterControl has the option to use automatic software leveling. This is where you measure the height of 3 points on the bed using the piece of paper. If you try to use both types of leveling at once, they will conflict with each other and cause problems. This is why the option for software leveling is now hidden if you have a Robo or any other type of printer with a probe. For more information on the various types of leveling, and how to configure them, look at our article on [[Automatic Print Leveling]].
