Hi Walter,

The output of the Polyboard DXF is set with the units options.

I regularly open these files in Draftsight, AutoCad  and SketchUp and always get coherent units.

As well as this , we have hundreds of people using these DXF files to run CNC so the units have to be consistent.

I suggest you look closely either at the application that you are using to open the files, or the set up of the units in your version of Polyboard.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness,

Thank you for your quick reply

The problem is in the the output format of the dxf file

I’m set the parameters correctly, however when it is read into a import the values are 1000 x too big

Using eDrawings 2016 x64 Edition

Hi Walter,

Use the Options button to make sure that SketchUp is set to the same units as Polyboard.

why are the dxf  exports  scaled 1000 x  more than they are ?

a 1 m x 1 m  panel  when exported to sketchup shows it to be 1000 m x 1000 m
