I use lightwave default scale but when I export to STL format for printing the size of the object is too small.
What's the correct scale factor?

It's been a while since I used the LW STL exporter, as I use a dedicated file format translator but, IIRC, you choose mm in the exporter.

It is mm as Spherical said, which sets the scale factor to 1000 I believe. Alternately, if you didn't change this unit in the export window, you should even be able to scale the STL by 1000 in the software you use to export your G-code.
