 Eaton Williams - Cubit
At the heart of the Cubit Steam Generator is a water metering system that regulates the flow to the heat exchanger to provide high quality dry saturated steam.
Cubit provides high quality steam to a wide range of applications including, for example, cooking, sterilising and various production processes as well as large-scale humidification where one of the control options allows it to be fully integrated into building management systems.
The all stainless steel Cubit range uses demineralised water to produce clean steam suitable for the pharmaceutical industries or for humidifying large clean rooms needed for the manufacture of semi-conductors and similar electronic components.

 WWF: Cubit References
The original cubit was the length of the forearm, from the elbow to the end of the middle finger, as is implied from the derivation of the word in Hebrew and in Latin (cubitum).
It seems to be referred to also in Deuteronomy 3:11: "after the cubit of a man." But this was too indefinite for a scientific standard, and the Babylonians early adopted a more accurate method of measurement which passed to the nations of the West.
The cubit mentioned in Judges 3:16 is from a different word in Hebrew (gomedh) and was probably shorter, for Ehud girded it on his thigh under his clothing.

The length of the cubit is variously estimated, since there seems to have been a double standard in both countries, and because we have no undisputed example of the cubit remaining to the present time.
This was probably the cubit mentioned by Ezekiel 40:5 and perhaps that of Solomon's temple, "cubits after the first measure" (II Chronicles 3:3), i.e.
The ordinary cubit of commerce was shorter, and has been variously estimated at between 16 and 18 or more inches, but the evidence of the Siloam inscription and of the tombs in Palestine seems to indicate 17.6 inches as the average length.

Not all cubits were defined as the distance from elbow to fingertip either, and there were usually hand-width, finger width (digits) or spans subdividing the cubit.
The Hebrew for Cubit is "ammah", derived from mother, as in "mother unit of measure".
Considering Noah was only 10 generations from Adam and got the bronze medal in the longevity records, it would be safe to assume he was a lot healthier (and taller) than the average male on the planet today, or in the UK air force for that matter.

This means that a diameter in the range 9.5 cubits through 9.708+ cubits would result in a circumference of 29.845+ cubits through 30.5 cubits.
These numbers are in the range of 10 cubits diameter and 30 cubits circumference to the nearest whole cubit.
Likewise, the 144 could be the result of measuring 12 lengths of a measuring rod 12 cubits in length or, perhaps, a remnant of a base-12 number system (for instance WE still use "dozen" and gross").

The making of the cubit measure took about half an hour or less with the lessons leading up to it being about 20 minutes each day.
To make cubit measures, students lay 3/4" digit template on one end of wood to mark first digit; repeat until the board is divided into 28 digits marks.
I had sorted the number cards so that several numbers were placed under each of the three unit cards; students drew a number card from the "digits" pile and located something in the classroom that was the length on the card.

 The Royal Cubit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
There is evidence that the measurement unit known as the Royal Cubit was already in use as much as one hundred years prior to the building of the Great Pyramid, and perhaps even somewhat earlier.
While there is much that is plausible in these approaches, I believe they all fall short as a rationale should it be the case that trigonometric, and Earth size, knowledge had been gained by the Fourth Dynastic period of the Old Kingdom.
Knowing but the length of the Royal Cubit and the code of its derivation, one can work backwards not only to an accurate measure of the Earth's size, but also to the diagram that opens the door to the trigonometric table.

 Canon of Art
This approach is further indicated by a dimension of 33 1/3 cubits which Lauer has noted in six instances, three of which evidently resulted from the division of a length of 100 royal cubits in three equal parts; while one dimension of 333 1/3 cubits was noted to be a third of 1000 cubits.
Since, furthermore, 1/6th part of the royal cubit amounts to 8.73 cm, it might plausibly have been equated with the natural palm, measuring across the full palm instead of the fingers; and we are presented with the possibility that early palm measurements referred to a royal cubit consisting not of seven palms, but of six.
The difference from the previously-assumed small cubit of 45 cm is of course slight, but is sufficient to favour an origin for the royal cubit in the fraction of 6/5 of the small cubit, as opposed to that of 7/6.

The exact length of this measure is still a subject for discussion, but it is generally thought to mean the length of the fore-arm from elbow to the tip of the longest finger.

 CUBIT
For more than a decade, CUBIT has been the focus of a broad research and development effort in mesh generation and geometry preparation at Sandia National Laboratories.
In addition to its role as a software provider, CUBIT encompasses ongoing research efforts to improve and discover new mesh generation algorithms, develop new tools for geometry cleanup and simplification and handle ever more complex preprocessing tasks for computational simulations.
As a result, significant effort in the past few years has been devoted to separating components of the CUBIT infrastructure or developing new tools as modules that can be used both as components of CUBIT as well as third party libraries callable from other applications.
