3DS MAX to Cura to UM2 Questions?

Recommended Posts

1. Units in 3DSMAX to Cura? If I have a model of something in MAX (a simple box for example 5unitsx5unitsx5units) and I want to send it to Cura (as an STL) to be built at a height 5"x5"x5"... what unit settings does Cura expect in the STL to build something this (precise) size?

2. In other words, if I'm sending Cura an STL file (exported out of MAX), what would the units in MAX need to be setup to, to come over to Cura and be the right size when printed 5"x5"x5"?

Thanks!
