Does anyone know how to keep a scale the same across multiple blender projects? For example, I have a plane set to 8', but when I copy it and paste it in a new project, it is set all the way to 314.96' with the scale still set to one across the XYZ axis. What am I doing wrong?

If you want to keep the scale the same across multiple Blender projects set the scale to the same units and also keep the unit scale the same in all of your projects.

It can be done in the Properties Editor, Scene tab under Units section:

    $\begingroup$ Once you determine the setup that works best for you, you can save a new startup file. docs.blender.org/manual/en/2.79/data_system/files/… $\endgroup$ Dec 7, 2020 at 21:38
