Creo Unit Won't Convert

Hello all, 

I created a basic square with dimensions: H10.50" X L4.00" X T0.06" and create an STL for my 3D printer, when transferred over, these were the values. When i unchecked Inches, the mm is setup as inches value.
the standard unit setup for the part is inches.

When dimensioning it into mm with creo using standard unit inches for the part, it would build it correctly in the 3D printer with correct dimensions.

I am unsure exactly what's causing this issue in my Creo. I don't think it's 3D printing related.

Please can someone help me? 

Thank you,
FYang

Hi,

problem is related to ideaMaker software. It expects that user imports model created in mm.

1.] contents of STL file is unitless ... see stl_part_ascii.stl (I renamed it to stl_part_ascii.txt)

2.] uploaded video shows that you have to change scale of imported model
