Cubic feet (ft³) and cubic meters (m³) are measurements of volume. Each measures a three-dimensional object. The measurements are cubed because the object's dimensions are multiplied together, such as feet by feet by feet. The cubic foot is a standard system volume unit measurement and the cubic meter is a metric system volume unit measurement. You can convert volume in cubic feet to cubic meters easily with conversion factors and a calculator.
