Question: Scale factor for 3D visualization


I use for the 3D visualization the component CAD geometry with STL files.
My STL files are created from CATIA with parts mesured in mm.
In MapleSim, in order to keep mm, I have, of course, to set "mm" in the inspector tab of the components "CAD geometry".
But, I have also to put the scale factor to 0.001.
I don't understand why I should to set it to 0.001 because :
- the CADs from CATIA are in mm.
- and the option in the inspector tab of the components "CAD geometry" is also in mm.
Would you have some precisions about the scale factor for the "CAD geometry" element ?

Thank you for your help.
