TL;DR what’s the most efficient way to input imperial measurements?
After living in the bliss of the metric system for the vast majority of my career I now live in Canada. Yes, it’s supposed to be metric but that’s all a lie. The construction industry here is still stuck in the dark ages and I have a big project coming up.
So, with SketchUp in metric (mm) I cruise around modeling away happily, left hand on 3D mouse or shortcuts and right hand smashing mm numbers into the VCB. Great. When it comes to imperial my hand has to use Shift+’ to get the inches and type a load of ’ and " and / everywhere. It really jars my buzz… man!
How do you do it? Should I learn decimal inches? (that concept itself is totally nuts!)
