Makerbot’s in Milimeters

Hoping to save new modelers some grief with this troubleshooting tip from Makerbot Support:

Sometimes the intended size of an object can get lost in translation between your design software and slicing. Our software expects units to be set to millimeters, so make sure that your modeling software is also set for millimeters. If you open an STL or OBJ in MakerBot Desktop and it appears to be much too small, click the Scale button twice to open the Change Dimensions submenu and click Inches > mm to resize your object.
