Set units to metric or imperial. Create a default plane. Now try to extrude it by typing in a numeral and unit. For example: 10cm or 10in or 10m or 10 yds. It does not work.
try with a plane select face and E Z 5 it will extrude up z to 5
check out the N panel it’s updated as it should be !
or extrude the plane a little while in metric unit
looks at the n panel
and set Z value for in dimension panel at 5m it will make Z height = to 5 m
works fine for me !
seems ok for me !
Thank you RickyBlender. I think I just figured it out.
When in metric unit system mode the number before the decimal point is meters. Example: If I want to extrude 5m I type 5.000 in the Median under Transform Panel. If I want 5cm, I type 0.050. For millimeters it’s 0.005.
