The question clears everything. While I am transferring an STL document into Solidworks, the thing is getting 10 times larger. But while I am measuring it is other programs like SketchUp,it is 200mm and in Solidworks it is 2000mm.

 

Can you please share your thoughts?

While transferring the file, you will get options related to source unit and the destination scaling. Perhaps you are importing the file in cm. please check the scaling.

probably you need to re-scale the file by 25.4....
