A while back I made a unit conversion node that I used to scale a basic cube on the ICE Topology Cube thread.http://www.si-community.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=1467
I had the chance to revisit this subject lately and modified the node to do several conversions. Combined with other nodes; I have found this little node very useful. Maybe you will too.
Attached is the Unit Converter node. This node can replace or supplement my original node provided with my ICE Topo pack.http://www.si-community.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2269Description
The node is used to convert unit lengths into several world length units: SI units, kilometres, metres, decimetres, centimetres, millimetres, miles, yards, feet, or inches. The node can be expanded as required using the properties of the unit length input combo list of the node to suit your needs.
The node is based on two values for the conversion:
• one (1) SI unit equal to 10 centimetres, and
• one (1) inch equal to 2.54 centimetres.
The node uses an input value and a combo box to convert the value in two ways:
• Convert the input value from SI units to the user selected unit (meter, inch, etc) in the combo box, and/or
• Convert the input value from the user selected unit of conversion (input combo box) to a new value in SI units.
