Hello everyone,

When exporting to DWG, no option seems to work for me in order to generate layouts in meters, instead of milimeters. Tried units, all translators...

So what here (already in autocad) measures as 1051 units, should measure as 1,051 units (A1+):

It is strange, since the layout is in meters in Archicad:

Also notice that the exported paperspace is correct, in meters.

Any ideas?

It may be a stupid idea, but maybe your Project Units for Paper Space (Sheets) are set to millimeters in AutoCAD and this is why they display 1051.
