Rescaling model to new units
show user profile  jpedleham
Hi, so i modelled a building from a cad plan to mm but it turns out i need it in inches, simply changing the system units wont do what im after because 1 mm is then 1in i actually need to scale the model up so that 1 inch it the equivalent to 25.4mm. is this a simple scale to 254% or will that not do what im after?

Use a tape-measure helper. You can find out the exact dimensions.
