    You can always change units in Revit, don’t you? :)

    Have a project now where half the CAD plans are in inches and the other half is in feet, so in Revit everything is skewed off.


    no, this the problem of an entire nation that is still using imperial units.

    You can have hash marks… when you pull the keys from my cold dead fingers.

    the funniest part is to be the neighbor of Americans, using materials made in feet and inches yet building with the metric system. It’s like thinking in a language and talking another one.

    The problem arises not out the units of measure but the inability to modify the program to work with the units that the User is most comfortable with. The computer does not care if we measure in Metric, English or whatever but from what I have experienced REVIT is much more cumbersome and unforgiving when trying to use alternate units.
