Switch between metric/imperial

Postby Justus » 11 Aug 2017, 19:05

Would it be realistic to expect an update that'll make it possible to switch between metric and imperial system? This is an issue when working with non-EU customers. My only concern is the front-end (the window forms that mention weight, size, length, etc.). I imagine that the back-end (dynamics engine etc) and the actual scene content can remain unchanged.

Hello Justus,

in the past there was an option to change the units in the UI, but this led to too many confusions, and in the end, the SI system has only advantages over the imperial system, so there will probably be no developments into that directions unfortunately.
