imported FBX is scaled smaller than SketchUp model

I'm trying out Lumion demo so I'm new to Lumion.
I've built a small model on a location map within SketchUp. I've successfully imported the model and the location map with textures via FBX import, however the model does not seem to retain the scale when importing into Lumion. The model is much smaller. Is there a way to know how much one is scaling a imported model in Lumion?

How can I retain the same scale of the imported model in Lumion?

Thanks.

Hi mrdcon

Which Scale -> Units setting did you use when exporting with FBX?

Our recommended format to import to Lumion is the SketchUp file itself (*.skp). 

As you are using Lumion Demo, which is version 5.3, then the SketchUp version supported is 2015.  Refer further our Import/Export Guide: SketchUp: How do I export a model?

Collada would then be the next preferred if for some reason you are unable to use SkUp.
