Hi all! I'm working on drawing a railroad spur in AutoCAD 2011. I had an archaeologist get the measurements for me and unfortunately, she measured in units of 10 (i.e. 1 foot = 10 units so each "unit" = 1 1/4" I'm wondering if there's a way in CAD to automatically convert these units. If I could enter 1 and have it come out automatically as 1 1/4" so that I don't have to convert every single measurement. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks! Emily
jsteers posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi guys ! Im really new to CAD and struggling slightly ! :'( I am a event planner and have managed to draw my set onto the venue layout but I dont know whats gone wrong but I just cant understand the measurements, im basically trying to draw a 90cm x 55cm table that I can put in the room and copy'n'paste around but I cant work out the measurements, the drawing of the venue layout and the stage is 1:50 scale. I just want to be able to draw a shape which is to the same scale as the drawing and be able to easily understand the units, to have them simply in cm ? Can anyone help ? THANKS SO MUCH
