Attached Link: "Dr Geep's Scale" - (DGS) - The History of the Poser Native Unit (Pnu)

*(click image to view full size) (click link above image to view the history of the Pnu) * :lol: ... Ok, ok, HERE are the scientific facts! ... :lol:* *And ... * *A "final" :smile: word regarding Dr Geep's Scale (DGS). It is not, nor has it ever been. my intention to start or continue a "holy war" regarding the "Scale" in Poser. :smile: **:biggrin: Click the link and meet the "real" Poser native! :biggrin:** DGS was invented before any "Real World Scale" was available in Poser. That was during the heady days of Poser 4. :biggrin: A "Poser native unit" is exactly the same as ... ... a "Wavefront OBJect unit" ... *(from ~25 years ago - that's a quarter of a century!)* ...  which has been an industry standard in the 3D graphics world for many years, e.g., Wings3D, RaytDream Studio, Carrara, etc. and is the same unit of measure (UOM) as a "dxf unit", also, used in many 3D computer graphics and engineering applications. And ...  A Pnu is the same in Poser(1), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.  It has never changed.!!! One can not say the same for Poser's feet, inches, cm, mm, etc. between various versions of Poser, i.e., a P5 inch not the same as a P6 inch. And ...DGS works! :smile: Ask anyone who uses it. :smile: cheers, dr geep ;=]
