Space Evaluation Report - Perimeter to Feet

102 Views, 2 Replies

Useing Autocad Architecture 2014, up to date.

 

When I print the Evaluation Report of a space the Perimeter is in Inches - I need to create the report so Perimeter is in Feet.

 

I have tried Manipulating Property Set Definitions, Drawing Units, Data Format Styles, Evaluation Options...I can set the general Drawing Units to Decimal and Feet, but you have to rescale your model.  I thought the Data Format Style would override the general Drawing Units.. but it doesn't seem to work quite like i want it to.

Hi Matthew,

 

It appears that if you are exporting the Space Evaluation to an Excel spreadsheet, the units display in the units of the drawing. This is controlled from the Application Icon > Drawing Utilities > Drawing Setup > Units tab > Drawing Units. If you change this to Feet instead of Inches, the data exported to Excel is displayed in Feet, however still in decimal.

 

You can avoid this issue altogether by exporting the Space Evaluation to a TXT document instead of an Excel Spreadsheet.

It just seems like you should be able to override the general drawing units so you dont have to rescale your model to get a correct read out in Excel.
