You probably did nothing wrong. It is simply a matter of Smart Draw exporting different units than DesignWorkshop is importing.

If Smart Draw gives you an option when exporting try using different units.

If you do not have an option you can scale the objects up in DesignWorkshop. To do this use the Edit menu, Select All command, then the Arrange menu, Group Objects command, and finally use the Edit menu Scale command.

In most cases of this the proper scale factor is 1200% (inches to feet) in all three dimensions. If this scale factor does not work for you, you can figure out what it should be by dividing the desired size of an object by the actual the size of the object.

Please let us know whenever you have further questions.

Best wishes,

Mike Wheeler
