When I convert a dgn-file to dwg, the outputfile changes the drawing units from meter to feet.Wherever I look in the original dgn-file there are no trace of feet but still the outputfile changes to feet.
Does anyone have an idea of a solution to this?
I'm using this version.
I have changed the file format in the first window you sugest Maria and still I got this when I check Units in dwg. So I-m still stuck with feet.
The second window "DWG open options". Where can I find this?
When you first launch MicroStation and you select the DWG file there is an Options button beside Open and Cancel. I am using SS4 but I suppose SS3 has the same option available.
To add on Maria's suggestion, you may try using a seed file that has the expected settings created by the product you use. You screen capture suggests you were using a product other than ACAD.
The problem appears when I open a converted file with AutoCad Civil 3D 2018. Thats where the screen capture are from. So I'm a little hesitant about the solution with open options that Maria suggested. I am using a dwg seed-fil when I convert. And in that file I cannot find anything that say feet and still it appears when I convert. It really bothers me!
Even if you open the seed.dwg file in c3d and use the "-DWGUNITS" command?

Me and Erik are really trying to find put what went wrong. I have also tried to create my own seed.dwg with correct settings, but the result after export is still feet. I have also tried export to dwg with Connect version and the result is also feet in dwg. But I have found out that, if the dwg is opened in a very old version AutoCAD 2014 the unit is correctly with meter. But the same dwg opened in AutoCAD 2016 & 2018, the unit will be feet. I think Autodesk has made some changes with dwgunit, but Bentley hasn't change the export feature in Microstation so that it works with newer AutoCAD versions.
