Wishlist: Dimensioning to engineering levels (0.0001")

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Wishlist: Dimensioning to engineering levels (0.0001")

Postby toddbg » Tue Jan 03, 2012 4:19 am

I would really love to be able to set my dimensioning to decimals and be able to set the precision beyond the current 0.01".

Ideally we would be able to set to the ten-thousandth level (0.0001").

Thank you

He's talking about dimensions in LO.

Argh! I just ran into the same problem! The model is drawn to 0.001" precision but there's no matching precision in layout. I can't simply convert to metric because Layout's mm precision is limited to 0.1mm. *sigh*

I wonder why precision got limited in Layout?

In general, Layout dimension precision options should at least match SketchUp's precision options.

I'm looking forward to having this fixed in the next version!

I'm a new user but have just run into this limitation, very aggravating for engineering work.

So, then, what is Dave pointing to in his "LO precision. png" image? Scroll up 3 posts.

It only goes to 0.01" and 0.1mm.

Just want to add my voice to those hoping that Layout will soon be able to dimension to at least ten thousandths of an inch.

Thanks

Like to add my $.02 also. Totally agree that Layout needs to have matching accuracy!--AND SOON, PLEASE!
