What unit of measurement is the Lumion default?

Lets say I have a scene in 3ds Max(or any other standard 3D package) and there are 8 buildings. If I need to export these separately and import them separately into Lumion, HOW OR What is the best way to ensure that they are placed and scaled correctly into Lumion?

Also...what is Lumions standard default measurement system....Units, cent, inches, feet, meters??

Thanks so much in advance for any advice!

You have to see what is your unit in your modeling package.
So if you model in meters, 1m is 1 unit in lumion.

Hi detbear, set your Max 'system unit' to "in" and 'display unit'  to "cm"
that will be fine
