algorithmic modeling for Rhino


Long time Rhino user, but recent user of Grasshopper.  I have a basic question, but I have a feeling there isn't an easy solution.  I have a very complex ghx written for an architectural project that was using the metric system.  All of the sliders, and numbers are based off of meters.  I am trying to reconfigure this to use for an imperial project here in the US.  Everything is already set up for new users [slide this to increase "X" and slide this to increase "y" and so forth].  It was made so people like me didn't have to get in there and remake everything. 

Question is can I easily switch the units of the file so everything works in ft and in?  Changing the rhino units doesn't seem to effect the ghx.  I basically want the 1m to just work for 1ft, and then I can manually adjust the numbers up to account for the scaling issues.  Like I said the file is pretty dense, so there is basically no way for me to redesign it. 

Thanks for the help!

Nice, working now!

Cheers and thanks for sharing!

Thank you, Sir. Works like a charm!

Hello All,

Sorry for replying to an old thread, but I have made a few changes to Brian Harms' Arch Dim Converter to suit my needs, and I thought it would be beneficial to everyone to redistribute it back to the Grasshopper community.


  1. Implemented rounding routine so 110.9999 is now 111'-0", e.g.
  2. Implemented option of using F'-I N/D" style or original F'I-N/D" style.
  3. Modified cluster that converts to decimal to accept different variants of Ft-In formatting.
  4. Changed out old/outdated components.

I'd appreciate any comments or bug reports!
