Hi @Marthar_Kebirungi
You cannot change the unit system, but you can input the metric units in a project in the US. Try to type 25m as the width of the building, and you will see that Forma translates it tp the imperial system automatically.

Hello @daniel.silva.gameiro thank you for the insight. So should we assume that the unput units are determined by the region where US Hub is imperial while UK Hub is metric?

Hi @Marthar_Kebirungi , the unit system is determined by the project location, not a hub. The site used for the contest is in the US, thus the project is in the imperial system even for users based in Europe that have a European Hub.
Have you tried to input some values in the metric system and see how the software automatically translates it into the imperial one?
