Units layout and units model.
Nothing in level 1 training pdf or internet on what both these are.
I also couldnt see, searching through on the word ‘units’, anything about altering the projects units from inches to mm then back again. to scale or not to scale.
…and how to get the dimensions to show mm when units set to mm, and inches whehn units altered back to inches.
using Jeffs advice I chose not to scale.
I altered an inched project to mm so as to work with some plans for components marked in mm, and got my component 12 times bigger than it should be !
dimension for the existing item still said 63, and the created item said 760, having drawn the first at 63 inches wide then the second at 760mm wide, after going to properties, selecting word units and millimetres from the dropdown and no to scaling.
I see a units model and that is now millimetres, then I see a units>layout and that is still set to inches.
so do I have to alter both to mm, have I drawn my 760mm item in inches ?
Just what is layout units about ?
WHY IS IT…I can go to properties>units and select millimetres and no to scaling and yet still see inches in the dimensions ?
