Size of the 3D print vs Actual size

Recommended Posts

I wanted to know that, is there any size difference between the .stl file generated form CT scan and the actual size of the skull of the patient.

at the conversion, is there any dimensional change could be happen in the software.

There shouldn't be. Just know that the unit of measurement is in millimeters. If you import the STL file into printer software and specify that the unit of measurement is cm, inches, or feet, your model will be HUGE.

 

Hope this helps.
