My drawing is set to state plane and feet. when I import GE the elevations are different that thos reproted on the GE screen. For example at a given location GE reports 538 but the c3d surface report 164 a factor of 3.28. sounds like a meter thing going on. is this normal? can It be adjusted?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by KenPrzybysz. See the answer in context.
I've gotten around this by typing UNITS at the command line and setting the "Insertion Units" to Feet.
Got get em!
Hey you got 1 kudo for 3 post. You'd be heading for Cooperstown with numbers like that
That much I got. But if GE is saying feet and my c3d says feet other than acad units were unitless why would it come in in meters?
Hey Joe, not much work to do today I see... Instant replies!!! *forget I said that*
I have had that problem in Civil 3D 2011 as well. If I imported something into my drawing, it would show up in inches, and put itself out way in outer space, but if I copy and pasted it, it would show up properly.
Both my drawings and units were set up to be the exact same, so I have no clue what happened.
Under your Toolspace drawing settings, what is your drawing units set up too? That may have something to do with it. Also make sure the "Scale objects inserted from other drawings" is selected.
Give that a try I guess.
(I waited a few minutes this time)
Thankes I see the check boxes that apply. Thats a big help.
