For doing that test, looks like I have a choice of either upgrading from 2.1
to 7m* at a cost that will no doubt cost thousand of pounds

or just keep on using IGES out and then Rhino to convert to STL. I wonder
what other major improvements has happened between 2.1 and 7m2 ?

By the way the files to edit are in the directory path:

/ideas/ms2/geo/ (I suppose for version 7 it will be /ideas/ms7/geo/

Find a file called 'sla250.dat' and edit the last line to whatever size you

e.g. for a metric value and the size of an SLA350
