Well I have a question I have LW 9.0, Cinema4D/Bodypaint and Freeform. I would like to know how I could export a LW or obj file into one or all of the other app's and have a real world size. If I make an object in LW at about 5 inches and try to export the file to one of the other programs the file comes in at, and this is just an example 15 inches. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? By the way I will be sending these files to an output device for a prototype.

Most 3d aps have prefs for their i/o's where you can go adjust things like scale, flip any axis on import/export and usually on a per file type basis, go look in the prefs ('COMAND+E' for Bodypaint)

Thank you, I should have looked there first. I'll give it a try.
