Size problems during importation from Onshape

I’ve just started using simscale for a school project. I’m trying to simulate the air flow around a spinning propeller and when I import the CAD model from Onshape, the size is drastically increased (20cm → 200m). I’m not absolutely certain it’s an issue, but all my attempts at rendering the mesh have failed because of a lack of processors. This leads me to think the oversized model is causing it.

Thanks for the help


Hello Ferdinand,

please make sure that at the import the base unit of the Onshaape model is selected correctly.
You can adjust the import base unit as described here:
