I have spent all my working life in engineering + some involvement in construction and timber industries.The cm is not used as a unit of measurement by any, it is considered an unfriendly unit ,therefore everything is dimensioned in M or mm. yet all I see & hear is cm this cm that

Outside of engineering it is a visually friendly unit - like the inch, it is relatively easy to visualise 10cm, rather than 100mm. But I agree that in engineering, it has no place - our products (connectors) range from 5mm to 100mm in size, cm would be useless to us.
