Pls is it possible in Reachview 3 to set up the units of exported dxf file?
When I do export in *.dxf and then I opened the *. dxf file in Microstation, the drawing has its main units setted up to inches.
And we use meters in Slovakia.
Thank you very much in advance.
RV3 doesnt allow me to change Linear units by creating the new job. The are anyway meters.
Also when I colect ponits and during setting out - averyting shows in meters. Tha is ok.
But I am asking if you can help me with exported *. dxf file.
When I open it in Microstation, the drawing has suddenly ( a dont understant why) main units setted to “inches”
I never work with inches and i never changing this setting.
This has someting with code which generate dxf file from RV3?
Or with some seedfile used for generating *. dxf file in RV3 (if there is some)?
I’ve confirmed that the units in DXF files are inches independently of the project’s units. Still, the exported coordinates are accurate coordinates in meters. So, if you change the units manually, like in @peterx’s example, it will work fine.
I’ve also shared all the details with our developers. They’ll look into how to make it work with the proper units out of the box.
I understand that this fix would make your workflow easier. But making it work smoothly for projects with any units requires thorough implementation. That’s why I can’t promise a fast solution. But I’ll be sure to let you know once we have any updates to share.
I’m back with news – starting with the Emlid Flow 8.2 update, the system of measurement in DXF files is set depending on the one of a project. So in your case, it should be the metric system now. If you have a chance to try out this update, let us know how it works for you!
