Part Sizes in the DXF files

Hi All,

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong here (quite possible as I'm new to DXF files and CAD) but when I import the CAD files into Freecad the total sheet is only 32mm.

I'm drawing a box around the parts on file 375 cut w spacers and the horizontal (X axis) is 36 mm, vertical (Y axis) is 20mm.

I thought maybe it was a units issue, importing an imperial into a metric application, but I had a friend import into 3d Studio Max and he said the same.

Is there a formula to increase the size by?

Glad I checked before sending to the laser cutter else I'd have ended up with a very small grinder.

Cheers
Adam

Take a look at the metric file here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=44
It takes an IEC standard motor.

I noticed the gusset parts are different in the newest version of the cut out dxf file. Any reason?

Also,
In the assembly instruction file. Is there a page that outlines the size of the holes, besides the ones that are color coded. What size holes are all the rest?
