volumes in meters
« on: December 10, 2008, 04:30:57 PM »
Ok,

I have a drawing that was drawn in millimeters and my client wants volumes for a pond in cubic meters. So I created contours for the pond in millimeters and did a volume calc using LDD 2007. The volume is reported back in Cubic Yards. It also appears that it is assuming that the millimeters everthing is drawn in is feet, even though my units settings is set to millimeters.

Please tell me I don't have to draw this thing in feet, do the volume, then convert to metric.

Thank you for you help!

Make sure your Volume Site Settings are set to output a suffix other than cu.yds. It may be that it is computing correctly, just not using the correct suffix.

Ok,

had to create a new project path and start the drawing set over using cut and paste. something was messed up in the original drawing settings or something. Got it now though!
