Grade Object Units

Question

I love the way the stake object units can be set independent of the drawing units!  It would be great if the grade object could do the same.  If it can, please let me know.

Thanks,

Greg

This needs to be fixed.  Great improvements for 2021 but this is still a necessity for AEC.  Grade points on grading plans in the US are ALWAYS in decimal feet units.  For now the only solution is to set the document units to decimal feet.  Of course in the EU they don't have this problem so really it's more a US problem - we should all go metric.

Yes, This functionality should be extended across ALL of the Site Modeling tools/objects, including Site Models, Grade Objects, and Site Modifiers, in addition to the current capabilities of Stake Objects.

I completely agree with this request, but I'm trying to find a workaround.  Sounds like changing document units to decimal feet may do the trick.  I'm a VWX novice, can anyone (@ericjhberg@lgoodkind , vwx staff)  let me know what unexpected trouble implementing this workaround might result in?

 

UPDATE: Unexpected trouble so far has included: all dimensions will now appear in decimal feet.  The only workaround seems to be turning on dual dimensions (settings changes in both Document Units, Document Prefs).
