This is because your mesh dimension scaling should be smaller (meter > millimeter). By default LutraCAD imports 3D scans in millimeters, but there is a chance this setting has been adjusted. Try changing the dimension scaling from meter to millimeter. To change this setting:

  • Open the LutraCAD Manager
  • Go to settings (bottom left gear)
  • Click on the "IMPORT" tab
  • Change "STL Dimension" to other dimension

To add something to the library we start by clicking on “LutraCAD - Insole” in the menu bar, “Library” and then choose what we would like to add. To add a shape/template:

  • We choose "Add shape/template"
  • Choose a pattern/shape as a basis
  • Add a 2D image of the new shape if needed
  • Scale and move the 2D image under the pattern/shape
  • Adjust the shape with the Bounding Box
  • Pick a name
  • Click on "ACCEPT"

Your new pattern/shape has now been added to the library.

Under the button "Change insole size" there is a sub-menu where you can choose from:

  • Adjust length/width (by drag bar)
  • Adjust heel width (by value)
  • Customize Manual (by Bounding Box)

To get access to the sub-menu click on the triangle in the bottom right corner of the button or right click on the button.

The current height of the selected object will be shown on the right at "Object height" in millimeters. To adjust his use the button "Change height" in the left toolbar.
