Importing files to 3ds Max 2013/2012 keeping the same dimensions?

I've been adding some files (stl) to 3ds Max, to combine them and make one single file at the end. But when i export the merged files as a single stl, the dimensions are off from my original individual files.
Is there are a setting i'm missing to keep the files coming into the scene the same scale/dimensions?

Hi Nuno,

When you add the .stl in Inventor there is an option see attached...
If I check the "meter units" the length of a random edge will be scaled in meters of course that makes sense...
However, try and tell if that was the issue otherwise to look on a different solution...

Cheers buddy
