ACAD users complain that the blocks in exported DWG from Microstation has undefined units so the block scale is not correct. when inserted.
The cells should be 2meters but are 0.003 meters in ACAD. If the units are fixed in ACAD block definition dialog then the blocks are correct. Tried to set different design center units(key-in:dwg units, dwg insunits) in DWG seed or after export using Microstation but it didnt help.
Thanks for sending us your test file! I think that I might have finally understood the issue you were facing: you(rather the recipient of DWG file) worked on an ACAD installation with INSUNITSDEFTARGET and INSUNITSDEFSOURCE set to different units than those in the DWG file. It turns out that I have misled you in believing that these two system variables can be set in a DWG seed file - they cannot. These are actually user preference settings in ACAD and are stored in the computer's registry, not in the DWG file as most of other system variables are. While in theory we can also change these registries as a DWG SaveAs option, it would only help you if you run ACAD on the same computer and logged in as yourself. Based on my understanding of your workflow you were sending your DWG files to someone else who did not use your computer, therefore such an option to change the registry offers little help to you nor to most users using MicroStation. When your ACAD user had these two system variables set to different units than the design center units in the DWG file you sent to him, he would get an unexpected scale when he inserted the block into the model. In this case, defining the units in the blocks makes sense, so that the ACAD user wouldn't have to change the system variable to the correct file units. We will consider adding this option in a future release of MicroStation.
