Hey, does anyone know what the precise scale factor is for importing 3DS objects into LW? Every time I do it the object ends up being about 80X the size it should be.

Yes, it's crazy, and different programs seem to output different results.

Usually 0.1 or 0.01 works fine for archi viz

they vary depending on the app...just set up a 1m box to export...import into lw then use the rescale export/import functions of your app to compensate, once set up you should be fine.

0.01 if fine for 3dsmax to lightwave 9.6
