Along with the email, that lead to the solution on the DXF issue, there was also a statement about the 3DMF scaling issue. Did Artifice have a chance to look at that? Here it is as copied from the Abvent email:

"About 3DMF files, the problem is that DesignWorkshop does not use the
standard 3DMF format designed by Apple : more precisely, DesignWorkshop uses kQ3UnknownTypeText to save the scale factor instead of using a kQ3TransformTypeScale object. In QuickDraw 3D documentation, one can read : 'Unknown Object are generated when reading files which contain custom data which has not been registered
in the instantiation of QuickDraw 3D'. So the solution for you would be to save your model in cm, if it is possible, or to ask Artifice if the Scale Attribute is a really 'custom data', and what they suggest about it.

From, Odile (Abvent Tech Support)"

Could you translate this for us non-techy types. Sounds like Abvent and Artifice are in opposite corners on this one. Has Artifice directly contacted Abvent on this issue yet?

Thanks in advance for your efforts :)

See ya
