## How to Convert Millimeters to Feet

Convert millimeters to feet with this simple formula:

Converting a millimeter length measurement to a foot measurement involves multiplying the length by the conversion ratio to find the result. One millimeter is equal to 0.003281 feet, so to convert simply multiply by 0.003281.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 millimeters to feet using the formula above.

Our inch fraction calculator can add millimeters and feet together and it also automatically converts the results to US customary, imperial and SI metric values.

Millimeters and feet are both units used to measure length.

Millimeters are a metric measurement and can be abbreviated as *mm*, for example 1 mm.
Feet are an imperial measurement and can be abbreviated as *ft*, for example 1 ft.

Millimeter is spelled *millimetre* internationally,
and it is equal in length to .1 centimeters, 1000 micrometers, or ^{5}/_{127} inch. They are represented by the
smallest ticks on most metric rulers. To get a reference point of the size,
the thickness of a dime is 1.35mm.

The foot has been used throughout history to measure
length but the actual length varied. In the US it has always been equal to 12 inches and ^{1}/_{3} of a yard.
The standard 12" ruler can be used to measure a foot.
In 1959 the world agreed that the yard would be equal to .9144 meters, hence a foot is equal to .3048 meters. In some cases
you may need a linear footage measurement, which is simply the value of a length in feet,

We recommend using a ruler or tape measure for measuring length, which can be found at a local retailer or home center. Rulers are available in imperial, metric, or combination with both values, so make sure you get the correct type for your needs. If you need a ruler you can also download and print our free printable rulers which include both imperial and metric measurements.

## Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

## Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

### Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

- “kilo” – 1,000x larger
- “hecto” – 100x larger
- “deca” – 10x larger
- “deci” – 10x smaller
- “centi” – 100x smaller
- “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”

The u in Until refers to the base unit.
