    Default ArcGis for AutoCad Setting up Units

    Hello,

    I have AutoCad 2012, and have installed the ArcGis for AutoCad. I can now import the maps to layers and such. BUT, I'm unable to bring them in with the right unit of measure setup. For example, I know an existing building length is 155'-0" long yet when I measure it in AutoCad it shows 4'-11" or decimal 59.55' (I know that I won't be able to be exact on these measurements, but they should be very close)

    What steps do I have to do in AutoCad and with ArcGis for AutoCad to get these numbers right? Shouldn't it also show me my lat/lon position in my 'Drawing Coordinates' (bottom left corner of autocad screen) too?

    I have seen a lot of posts on this forum... Many, many, views... BUT, few replies.

    Please if you can help me I would appreciate it a bunch.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dave

    Wow... I guess there isn't much help from this forum. I look around and see hundreds of view and no replies on many posts.

    Being a noob I figured somebody would help out a little, point me in the right direction. NOT.

    Sadly disappointed.

    What coordinate system did you assign your drawing? If your measuring in feet your coordinate system will need to be based on feet.
