Civil 3D Measurements off

Recommended Posts

Austin

Hello All,

 

I could use some help figuring out an issue with the scale of my Civil 3D drawing. I created shapefiles in Arcmap and brought them into my Civil 3D drawing via Mapwspace. I drew these lines to specific dimensions in Arcmap and now when I measure them in Civil 3D they are 1/3 of the original measurement but still the same size, which lead me to believe my drawing may be in meters instead of feet but I checked and it is in feet in the settings. Any ideas?

What happens when you drag and drop the shape file ?

I just use mapwspace to bring in the shape files in. They appear in the correct spot and I can tell they are the right size by comparison to the aerial map but when I measure them with the measure tool they are roughly 1/3 of the size I drew them in Arcmap.

I'm curious if it possibly has something to do with the coordinate system I'm using (UTM84-15N Meter)?
