Is there anything like a ruler plug-in for DAZ Studio—some kind of visual aid that can be calibrated in feet or meters?

Any ruler for DS or Poser that uses the DAZ-scale (1 unit = 8 feet) will work.

Sarsifus, try the method I use in the OP… you’re not changing anything at all, you’re just creating a primitive that measures for you.

Actually, I did try the 1-meter cube primitive trick, and it’s so obvious but so genius—and I’m kicking myself for not having thought of it. Thanks…

Like I said, you can select centimeters or inches when you create it, and set it to whatever dimensions you want.  It makes measuring out stuff for a scene soooo easy smile

But… I can’t figure out when a girl is 36-24-36 or if she has an A, B, C or D cup size :(

SOMEONE COME UP WITH A SYSTEM TO DO THAT PLLLLLLEEEEEEZE!

I agree I wish there were better ways to do all this especially the cup size stuff. I also would like to measure out certain aspects of my male characters for realism sake of which I wont go into detail. I would do it myself but I suck at all kinds of math lol

That might be difficult to determine anyhow when you have such height differences.  I still want to know what Genesis A3 is in height (since it makes Genesis a lot shorter)  Sadie and Sam as well if you have those shapes.  Oh, and if you have Mavka for Genesis… she’s pretty small.  (Oh, and don’t forget F5!)

I would say, taking a rough guess if a girl’s measurements are 36-24-36 ,then her midriff (if she is proportional)would be about 32” which means she is a D cup ......of course that all depends on the girl ,and how she chose her bra .......then again she could be real hourglass and just get wider from the waist to the chest and be an A cup ....... unless of course she lost alot of weight and her chest had dropped and just gone flat ,in which case it would probably be caught in her waist measurement ..........

 


Sorry I just couldn’t stop myself!!!

You need something that will measure a bit finer than full inch increments…it’s something like 5’ x.nn’‘, with the ‘nn’ being less than 0.25, if I remember, correctly.

And the important thing…it’s not the total height, but the proportions are different.

There is also Fire Angel’s Measuring tool

I used this, even though it says it is for poser. in is to a 1cm scale which is what the Natural scale of DAZ Studio is.
Also it is accurate. easy way to check, place it in the scene, the do a X-position change of 100cm. and the 1m line will be at floor level.
Of course this only does vertical measurements

But there is also this interesting little jewel over at Renderosity, Universal Sizing Apparatus/Woman. It would be interesting to play with.

We we need is a good none conforming measuring tape.

I’ve long thought that the ideal for measuring Genesis would be a good conforming measuring tape set, plus a script to calculate measurements based on inter-vertex distances on the tapes.

Not interested in the giant leap backwards that is “Genesis 2”.
