Custom Contour label units

Steve Riddle


I am having trouble with a landscape plan set where I want levels  to be in metres but I need details to be dimensioned in mm.


After trying to resolve this problem I converted the  file units to mm so I could dimension the details.


This has resulted in the site model displaying contours in mm which I need to displayed in m.


I expect this would be a common issue and there is a simple solution?

The way that I would do it is to make metres your main units and millimetres your dual units or secondary units. Then you can set up two dimensions standards. The first dimension standard would use metres and the second dimension standard would be using millimetres.


have a look at this movie from 7:30 onwards
