View Full Version : converting units
2004-06-28, 03:29 PM
I'm trying to find out the volume of a 3d solid in cubic feet. using my mass properties command I can only get the volume in cubic inches I think because units are not displayed in the dialog box. I would appreciate some advice.

Simply changing the units will not work for this.
Time to list that object, then issue the CAL command
at the command line and let AutoCad do the math;
lets see one cubic foot is eaqual to 144 cubic inches....
or1 cubic inches = 0.000578703704 cubic feet
