#### 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
