Please unify the units system for all the import plug-ins

Post by BogdanOancea »

Hi there, and a big thank-you to all the people who wrote the many import plug-ins for Blender. Very useful indeed! :)

The only trouble is that when I import models in different formats, they don't match by default: one of them looks ok (.lwo for example), but an .obj or .cob object is way too big, so that I have to resort to scaling them --- and I'm not always sure how much. That's because some coders consider 1 unit equals 1 meter, for others equals 1 cm, and so on.

The import features could be easily improved if all the Python coders would reach a common denominator regarding what 1 unit means in "real life". I suppose it's no too difficult to code. :roll:
