Xref Units
« on: January 20, 2010, 07:51:37 PM »
I have 2 drawings, one in "m" (a square of 1m sides at origin 0,0) and the other one in "mm" (a line extending from 0,0 to 1000,1000), both representing 1m.

When I overlay an xref using the xref palette, models of differing units come in and can overlay nicely.

When I overlay my models using code, the square is inserted at 0,0 - but it's length is still 1 (ie has not been "scaled up" to reflect it in mm) I have looked at the BlockUnits, but that hasn't worked. Is there anything else I can try, or people know of that work?

I would think that one would have to scale it up/down based on the drawings units ( xrefs ), and then the current drawings system variable ' insunits '.  I'm not sure how you determine a drawings units ( which I think would also be ' insunits ' ), unless you can check system variables per drawing ( database ).

I don't want to ' end-up ', I want to ' become '. - Me
