This might be what you are looking for.

If you load the Mesh Tools plugin from the MarketPlace, and then restart Cura you will get this added Menu option:



Which will lead to this dialog.  Under "Unit for files that don't specify a unit" there are options:



If you typically design in cm then the model will be scaled by 1000%.

The XYZ of the model will reflect that size in mm.

The "scale" of the model will then be altered to consider this new size as "100%".


In this example, the model was actually designed in mm (22 x 1 x 16) but I have set the Mesh Tool to cm.  You can see that the model has been auto-sized and the XYZ "scale" boxes reflect the new size (220 x 10 x 160).  This new size is now "100%" rather than 1000%.
