Site Model Alternate Units


It would be great if the site model could have different units than the file. We often design buildings in imperial (file units) but have to work in metric for site purposes. Dual units for the stake object would also be great.

Even within either systems site dimensions are often expressed differently than the rest of the file. For example we have setbacks expressed in Meters to one or two decimal places but the file is set in mm. In the past we used to have Surveys & setbacks set in decimal feet to one decimal point but the file would be in feet & inches. 


So yes please!
