09 September 2004, 07:02 AM
hi I am trying to measure my object since I want to keep them same height as the real world..
where are the options where I can change the grid to match meters or ft? can't find anywhere in the preference area....

thanks in advance!

Shift-s in a viewport will give you the visibility options. Under the Visual Cues tab you'll find the option to turn on rulers. Works only in the orthos.

Sometimes I'll just create a primitive object and adjust it's hight property to find an exact distance. I think there are some measuring scripts in the netview as well.
