#### Topic: Conversion Factors

I typically use 3 programs to model:

Sketchup
Blender
Wings 3D

I found out the conversion factors for the units from Sketchup to Blender. It turns out that it is the same from Sketchup to Wings3D, which means that if something is one size in Wings3D it will be the same size in Blender.

1 foot in Sketchup is about .3 Blender units.

That means that 1 blender unit is about 3.3 Sketchup units(ft)

Also, 1 Blender unit is 1 Wings3D unit (scale is the same)

The exact measurements are below:

1[SUU(ft)] = .30480[BU]

1[BU] = 3.28083[SUU(ft)]

1[BU] = 1[WU]

Below is a 1ft Sketchup Cube imported into Blender next to a 3.28083ft cube imported into Blender.
Note: The default size of a Blender cube added from the ADD MESH menu is 2 blender units or 6.56166ft I don't know how to figure out the conversion into Maratis

#### Re: Conversion Factors

As written in the Maratis website, 10 Blender units is equal to 1 meter in Maratis.
1 meter is 3.2808399 feet.
So 1 Blender unit is 0,32808399 feet in Maratis.
So if
1[SUU(ft)] = .30480[BU]
that means that
1[SUU(ft)] = ( .30480[BU] * 0,32808399[Maratis(ft)] ) [Maratis(ft)]
which is = 0.1

So 1[SUU(ft)] = 0.1[Maratis(ft)]

Thanks! So 1ft in Maratis is 10 feet in Sketchup!

That is a big difference! hehe. But I can always make the sketchup model at regular scale and then adjust the size of the entire model easily (multiply by 10?)

These factors all all over the place, but it is kinda neat now (glad they aren't too strange)
