v4 import ccm
Hi, after I imported the ccm files into v4, i notice the geometry scale is very small (using utility - geometry range). Does anybody know how to neutralize the geometry scale when importing grids from ccm into v4?

Re: v4 import ccm
did you use the "mm" as preferred lenght scale in ccm+? simply use the geom factor = 1 when writing the geom in v4, then you'll have correct dimensions...
Or scale the mesh in ccm+ by a factor of 1000 and then use the correct geom factor in v4...
