Measurement in an imported DWG

Not applicable
First of all. I'm a beginner in ArchiCad so please give me quite basic answers. Using ArchiCad18

I have opened an DWG project in scale 1:200. How do I do to get the correct values when I measure.

If there is anyone who could answer in Swedish it would help a lot.

When you open the DWG file, there is a Translator selected at the bottom of the dialog box. Click the Settings... button, go to the Settings in Selected Translator panel > Drawing Unit and change the Value of 1 DXF/DWG Drawing Unit in ArchiCAD option.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.
