Q371 : Change of Scale when Importing a DXF File

Question
In the 2002 version of CDEGS, when I import a DXF file into MALT, the software seems to assume the imported file is in inches and then converts this to meters. What could be the problem?


Answer
The ability to recognize the unit systems used in a CAD (DXF) file and convert the data accordingly when importing it is new to the 2002 release. When you use the import features of Input Toolbox or SESCAD, there is an option ("Convert Data to ... If Necessary') that you can clear to prevent the conversion.
