    Help! My imported cnc vice is tiny...

    Ok, so I wanted to put the vice on my working page with the work piece inside the jaws. So I import the cnc vise onto the page and it's the size of a grain of rice. I have been messing with it for over an hour to get it an accurate size and I've failed.:bs:

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I downloaded the zip file for the cnc (5 inch) vise from Sprutcam. It's for my tormach.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards~

    BT

    When I do, the entire working piece gets bigger as well.

    In addition, how do you scale it to its proper size? I'll just be guessing.

    Ok.

    Highlight the vice, and all its parts, then scale it, move it and the working piece onto the bed. Weird.
