software Civil 3d 2008
I have a section of a larger dwg which i am trying to make 2 tin files from (existing and proposed)
the dwg sent to me was in architectural units rather than decimal so the contours showed up as 50' not 600' and lengths measured 1/12 of what they should.
I used UNITS to chenge to decimal and everything appeared to scale correctly.
created the surfaces, created an alignment, a created profile, and then used profile view to create a viewable profile in the dwg and it comes out at the previous elevations (i.e. 48' ish)
used the co-ordinate tracing tool to check the ground levels... 600'
as the mouse tracked across though i noted that the cursor was picking up Z values that were still 1/12 of what they should be.
At the moment my next step is to try taking all the information into a new decimal dwg file and trying again, but i hate giving in to it when its probably a simple thing im missing...
and of course it should have been elevation in the title...
