> dont know if it will influence also the geometry I generate in .geo (aside

> I adjusted the meshing in the .geo-file acordingly (millimeter), but in
> the would like to set up the entire meshing in meter rather than millimeter.
> Could you tell me how to solve this? I attached both, the step file and
> the .geo file.
> Thank you already in advance,
