Hi there

This is probably a beginners question but i am a beginner..! Does anyone know how to specify the dimensions of a model in Maya - eg so a cube is 60mm x 60mm x 60mm?

I know this is possible in 3DS Max but haven't found a way to do this in Maya

Any help would be very much appreciated

Johnny

Maya: Window>Setting preferences>settings>units

Wings3D: Measured in WU (wings units) and are arbitrary like most modeling programs. I.e. if it's ten WU's wide, when you upload it you can specify it is in Milimeters and hence it will be 10mm wide.

Yes, thanks, that helped a lot. I have been messing around forever importing, exporting, measuring, and repeating just trying to get the right size!
