We have constructed a grid of 3D hydrodynamic simulations of deep convective and line-blanketed atmospheres. We have developed a new consistent method for computing and employing T(τ) relations from these simulations, as surface boundary conditions for 1D stellar structure models. These 1D models have, in turn, had their mixing-length, α, calibrated against the averaged structure of each of the simulations. Both α and T(τ) vary significantly with Teff and log g.
