    When I import my model it loads at a smaller scale... should I scale it larger in 3Dmax and re-export the STL file?

    I used to get the same issue in Modo. I personally like to fix the model scale in NetFabb once I've exported it to STL so that my source file (Modo) is left intact. Whilst I'm fixing the scale, I also check the mesh is watertight etc... in netFabb

    Netfabb is free but you can access additional tools if you upgrade to their professional version (I'm not using a professional version however). All the free tools generally covers what you need (checks the mesh is water tight, can fix scale etc...).
