Mesh file unit conversion

Post by robo_ninja » 24 Sep 2018, 20:11

I am importing a STL file (which has units in inches) to create a new model.. The other models created previously (which will be used in the same scene) have units in meter. So should I change the units to meter while creating the STL file for the new model or selecting "1 units represents 1 inch" in the Mesh scaling dialog box fixes that??

Also do I need to make the model respondable?

You can do it either way.
Whether you need to make your model respondable will depend on its function.
Make sure to carefully read this page.
