How to get desired unit settings when saving to DWG.Product: MicroStation Version: V8/V8iArea: DWG-Save As
Unit readout in AutoCAD is equivalent to Coordinate Readout in MicroStation.
Go to Settings > Design File > Coordinate Readout.
Follow the settings below to get the desired results in AutoCAD.FOR LINEAR UNITSFormat: Master UnitsAccuracy: decimal valueAutoCAD results: 2 - DecimalFormat: Sub UnitsAccuracy: decimal valueAutoCAD results: 3 - Engineering<(><<)>C R>Format: Master UnitsAccuracy: Fractional valueAutoCAD results: 5 - FractionalFormat: Sub UnitsAccuracy: Fractional valueAutoCAD results: 4- Architectural(There is no MicroStation equivalent for Scientific units in AutoCAD)FOR ANGLE UNITSFormat: DD.DDDD = DecimalFormat: DD MM SS = Deg/Min/SecFormat: Gradians = GradsFormat: Radians = RadiansMode: Conventional = clockwise unchecked, 0 direction = EastMode: Azimuth = clockwise checked, 0 direction = NorthMode: Bearing = Surveyor's units with "Clockwise" unchecked, 0 direction= North(There is no MicroStation equivalent for Surveyor's units with "clockwise" checked on in AutoCAD)FOR DESIGN CENTER UNITSThis is controlled by the Save as DWG OptionsUnits = feet, inches, meters, etc. will set the Design Center units tothat unit in AutoCAD.Units = Master U nits or Sub Units will set the Design Center units to the Master Unit or Sub Unit of the that is set in the design file units.Note:If the design file working units is a custom unit (10th of a foot for example) the Design Center units will be set to "Unitless".
