input scale will not convert traverse file

Post by tom » Fri Oct 24, 2003 5:59 am

I am trying to convert a manual entered traverse file in active editor from metres to feet. I am under the impression that this can be done. I have 3.2808 entered in input scale box and checked, I've also tried the same value entered in the output scale and checked. When I re-cordinate the traverse it still comes out unscaled (metric values).

Any help would be greatly appreciated and save a lot of time.

Scaling a Traverse file

In MSCAD2002 SP#4 we have a new command that will do what you are asking.

SCALERAW is the command and more information on how it works can be found on our web-site at this link: ... pdates.htm
