Question

My drawing is done in mm but I need to measure some dimensions in inches. Can Caddie do this for me?

Answer

Yes, Caddie has a feature called 'Alternate units' for measuring. From the Measure menu on the left hand toolbar, select AltUnit. Choose your Drawing Units (mm) and Measurement Units (Inches) and tick the 'Show Alternative Units' tickbox, then when you measure something, Caddie will show the alternate units in bracxkets after the normal dimensions.

 

An example might be: Diagonal distance = 18381.2 mm  (723.669 inches)
