We have conducted a 6" x 6" grid survey of a building's finished floor and the client has requested the output drawing of the point file survey to be shown in Millimeters. The Point Label style in Civil 3D 2009 only has the option to show Meters which isnt precise enough for the clients wants. I am using the metric template in autocad Civil 3D and all units are set to metric.
Is there a way to change you point label to show Millimeters???
I am using Civil 3D, Update 3
Solved! Go to Solution.
If you set to show 3 decimal places you are showing millimeters. If you set it to 4 you show a tenth of a millimeter.
make an expression and multiply by 1000 to show mm for the elevation.
Here's a link to how to create expressions:
The expresion worked but the orginal survey was not performed in metric units. I created an expression to covert feet to millimeters (Ft divide by 0.0032808334) and that set my elevations to show as millimeters.
