Do people tend to model "to scale"?
I am getting ready to start a new project and I began reading about the gird in detail and that brought up a question. Do you tend to model your object "to scale". What I mean is, if you want a 6 foot tall character, do you set the preferences to use inches, then set your grid to display every 12 units, then make your model 6 grid lines tall?
I am starting a 6 foot tall character and I don't want to slow down maya by making the object larger than it should be, but then again I don't want to make the model the scale of an ant either. Should after I have modeled many different objects in differnt files, be able to bring them all together than have them be to scale to each other, or does this not matter? I know that the final render is really all that matters, but this just feels like if I head off in the wrong direction, I will pay for it later. Thanks.
