Question

I have a requirement to show Feet and Inches in addition to the current metric dimension. How do I do this?

Answer

In Dimension Set go to the Alternative Units tab

Tick "Display Alternate Units"

Set the Unit format to Architectural

Set the Precision to 0.00 making this 0.000 will show 1/8" values

Set the Multiplier to mm>inches

Click OK and start using.

The alternative values will be in Feet and Inches

 

modify dimension style

NOTE

If you are using styles first make a new style based on the one you want to change. and edit the new one. Don't forget to make the new one the current style
