DAZ3D Precision Tool

DecanAndersen has created a centimeter rule DAZ 3D precison tool in response to a plethora of comments on various forums asking for a more precise tool for DAZ 3D.

Andersen states that he has, “made a simple plane with a very detailed Centimeter Ruler.”

You can get the details on this tool here – take note of the comments (there are only a few at the time of writing) as there are some small changes to the numbers that Andersen mentioned he made when he first laid out the information.

This tool is designed to help with proportions inside of DAZ Studio.

DecanAndersen’s Deviant Art Page can be found HERE

Decan’s instructions on how to use the tool in DAZ are as follows:

To use this in Daz Studio:
1.: Click the “Download File” button over to the right —>
2.: Unpack it somewhere safe as you need it in the future.
3.: Start Daz3D
4.: Go to File…/Import/
5.: Go to the location where you unpacked the Precision Tool, and select CM-Ruler_By-Decan.obj (Import Settings: From DAZ Studio 1 unit = 1cm – Scale 100%)
6.: Accept…
7.: Your good to go from here…

There is also a 3D Ruler For Precision Modeling With Blender – Blender 2.67

No more calculating slope and converting to degrees:)

    I know this has been an issue for me. It is great the way some people come up with simple, but robust solutions. Link is broken though :/

    This is a great add on as I have lots of problems with visually estimating size. This is one of those items that I never thought about needing until I saw it
