maya question settings>perference
Hello animators, this question maybe does'nt example to animation, but was wondering when you set the settings>preferences: to foot/meter/inches etc. how do you know how much space you are measuring.
example( if I have my settings set to foot/feet, and I'm building a plane how do I know if is 40 feet by 50 feet in diameter, and say building the walls how would I know or tell if one room has 12 foot high walls and another room has 10 foot high walls). If that does'nt explain, umm say I'm designing a room like mines and the floor is 20 by 20 feet and the walls are ten feet by ten feet, how would I exact them dimensions? if anyone can help will be most thanked
