Are you working through Geomagic Studio? We have a problem with units coming out of Studio. When working in inches and exporting IGES surfaces, Solidworks sees the part as mm which gives a 25.4 scaling factor. Step as an output format solves this problem, else we work in mm in Geomagic, then convert back to inches in Solidworks.

  Does anyone have experience with this scanner (PIX-4)? I bought one but have had difficulty with the units when importing into cad packages. I have contacted the company technical group and they say the units are determined by the setting for my computer . The regional settings determine if it is inches or metric. Seems like an odd way to select units and when I do, I still get metric when imported into some cad packages.
