I build mesh in Imperial units. These models import at the proper size without changing the scale. And while I will primarily build entire buildings to be imported, once the building is in my layout, I would like to position furnishings with a scale that reads in inches or feet/inches. Lets say I want a painting to hang 66" up from the floor. I would want to enter 66".
It would make things very fluid for architectural renderings of furnished buildings by those who build in feet and inches.
