AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Z Distance In Inches Not Feet

Dec 11, 2012

I have a very simple surface. All of the elevations defining it, are set in feet. When I click on the surface it tells me my max and min elevations are in feet matching the points that I have defining the surface.

Here is the kicker, when I run a distance it is measuring the Z distance in inches and not feet. As you can see by the attached image the distance is 95' but the elevation change is 1 3/8".  The actual points defining the surface are 1.28' difference. If I were to do a spot elevation on the surface, it would give me the correct elevation in feet. I am guessing that this is some sort of variable that I have missed, but damned if I can find it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Metric Versus Feet And Inches

Jun 14, 2012

I have a drawing in metric but I want the results in feet and inches, do I draw it in metric and have Autocad spit out a feet and Inches drawing, is that even possible. Or do I do the conversions up front and explain to the client that he will get his metric drawing back in feet and inches.

Second part, if the drawing is in metric do I open the Autocad Civil 3D metric icon or does it matter. Where I can read up on why there is a metic and imperial Autocad icon?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Commands Only Work In Inches - Not Feet / Inches

Mar 20, 2013

Out of nowhere my AutoCAD commands such as line, offset, circle, etc will only work if i type in the amount in inches. I use feet / inches when i use these commands. It says specify second point... Not sure what this means. For example I want to offset a line 15'-8". It won't let me do that. If i offset a line at 146" it lets me do it.

AutoCad 2D :: 2013 - Cannot Copy In Feet - Only Inches

Aug 24, 2012

When I had ACAD 2008 I used to copy objects and type 10' or 4' for the distance3 rather than 120 or 48. For some reason in ACAD 2013, it does not accept my distance in feet anymore. Do I suddenly have a setting off in ACAD 2013? I used to be able to work much more quickly and I work with large distances when copying.

AutoCad :: IPhone App To Calculate Feet / Inches

Mar 20, 2013

I’m a draftsman and I have a calculator that has feet and inches which of course makes things easy assisting in draft. I was wondering for those who do not have such calculator – I was considering creating a simple iphone app that does just that – add/ subtract as well as conversion from metric to imperial and vise versa. Just gauging to see if there is interest.

When drawing using imperial units in Revit, it of course interprets values you input as feet until you press " to let it know you mean inches. As I am constantly going between Revit and AutoCAD, which does the opposite, I keep missing the " out of habit and wasting time repeating everything. My question is, is there a way to change the input from feet to inches so I can move more seamlessly between the two programs?
