You need to do a "save as" then select type as stl on each part separately.

If you are in an assembly right click on the part and choose "open" to open that part in a separate window and then do the above.

You also need to go into options in the export box and set accuracy to high.

 

Check units as well, Inventor likes to change it to cm or something else. Hence showing up as wrong size in Cura

does this also apply to solidworks models ?

Yup!

For SW you should also click Save As, choose type STL, then left bottom set the options to pretty fine resolution.

Then it will look best in the slicer.
