    I'm working in MM environment in 3DMAX, when exporting my model to STL and uploading to Shapeways (MM is selected) I get error message that my model is too small.
    Only after I scale my model X 20, it gets to the about size in Shapeways.
    The model size is about 60x60x15 mm
    I need to get to the exact size, how should I scale my model so it would be transformed correctly?

    Thanks Magic, this is really helpful.

    BTW, where can I get the pricing tool for 3DMAX?
