Export Revit sheets to CAD - Viewport Scale Issues

474 Views, 3 Replies

Morning,

 

I have exported all my Revit sheets to CAD without any issues, but when I select the viewport in the created CAD files the scale of the viewport is incorrect.

Eg. Revit scale = 1:100, CAD scale = 0.0100000

 

Everything in the CAD file is the correct size, no problem with the content, just the viewport.

 

Thanks for any help!

Kyle

Thank you for visiting our blog!

 

I could not reproduce the issue on my end. I would say that it a set up issue.

Have you check the units for both AutoCAD and Revit?

Keep in mind that in one foot there are 304.8mm .

Please post a sample rvt and dwg file with the setup you have and I can investigate.

Thanks for the reply!

 

It seems the CAD file corrected itself. I'm not sure what happened but when I opened the CAD file a few days ago the viewport was now showing the correct scale.

 

Thanks for your help though,

Kyle
