Papercut: Volume Units

I think there is no way to print out the _Volume in Liters unless one is modeling in decimeter units. But who is modeling in decimeter?

The available options in _Volume are:
Units ( ModelUnits Micron Millimeter Centimeter Meter Kilometer Microinch Mil Inch Foot Yard Mile ):

Most of them are useless (at least for my work;) . I’d prefer to use liters for a range from 0.1 to 10000+

If possible please call it “Liter” and not cubic decimeters :wink:
Don’t know about other imperial units like gallon, barrel, …

Thanks,
Jess

Yes, this is something I would really like to have. Need it every day. It’s not so intuitive to try to figure out how many liters 3500 cubic centimeters are…
Please :smile:

I added this request as a bug for Rhino. See http://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-32177 for details.

Here’s a lovely example of user-defined (and default to last used)units of volume. I use this SubVolume script from Jarek Bieda even to do regular volume calculations because of this feature.
