When I attempt to convert a dimension from decimal to inches, as seen in my animation example here, the original number 12.50 changes to 1/2.
Hi Steve -
I can’t really see what is going on in that animation.
Can you provide a simple file and step-by-step instructions?
It sounds a bit like you are changing from decimal mm to fractional inches…
Yes, you are changing from decimal mm to fractional inches.
But it should be
12 1/2" rather than
1/2" (the video shows the latter)?
Correct me where I go wrong.
12.5 mm = 0.4921245 inch
0.4921245 inch = 1/2 inch with tolerance 1/4 inch.
oh. I thought it was
12.5" as the OP posted. Never thought it was
