Maybe I am missing something? I downloaded this and put the flashlight mount on cura and it was tiny? So now I am scaling it and trying to find the correct size. Any suggestions?

Scale it up. I had the same issue. 25.4%. 25.4 mm to inches. The guy that made it was spot on when he replied to my personal message. I hope this helps.

This is by far the best one I have found anywhere , I will post what its going on when I mount it , you wont believe it.

Glad you like it, I really hope it prints well for you.
I can’t wait to see what you’re up to.
I can barely stand the suspense!

Thanks Ivar42,
I created many of my older parts using inch dimensions.
My slicer never had any issue knowing the difference.
I'm not sure if there is meta data of some kind that tells some software if the parts were created in inch or mm.
It seems however that my slicer is the exception to the rule as the #1 issue I hear about is that the parts are scaled wrong.
I may spend some time later, go back, convert everything and re-post.
Until then, I apologize for the inconvenience.

I multiplied the size by 25.4 in Repetier and it printed just fine and fits the rail snugly.

I'd multiply the button by 25.2 or so though, it's a tight fit.

What is inner diam for flashlight?

I probably wouldn't try anything bigger than 27mm for the flashlight, but 25 is too small without some kind of shim or spacer.

I downloaded this and the specs are super small when loading in my slicer. Is that intentional? I am an Army Veteran and I have a ton of friends that want to see this in action.

I look forward to hearing from you..

I literally just had someone else ask me about this. The problem is almost surely your slicer. I know for sure that there are problems for some using different software. The problem for them was the result that your slicer is probably reading in the file in milimeters. The model was exported in inches.
I recommend rechecking your import settings or using a different piece of software to import it and then export it to whichever setting you need.
I have only ever had one person over a couple of years have trouble and that solved it for them.
Let me know how that works for you.

I'm pretty new to the 3d printing world, you obviously have some skills :). Any recommendations on slicers? I'm currently using Cura because it is retard proof.

And thanks for responding so quickly. Much appreciated.

i'd love to be able to suggest the perfect software for you, however there are far too many variables to account for. Your 3-D printer will probably work better with some pieces of software than others. You may need to check online for details regarding suggested software for your device. You may try looking into Tinkercad by Auto desk. It is free, very easy to use, and has a lot of support available for it.
Unfortunately, I can't guarantee that it will solve the problem. Hopefully though this helps to get you started. Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you .
