The Working Units are explained and changed for the projects. This is the last change to be made to the MicroStation settings prior to drawing the projects. The Linear Units and the Resolution settings are changed from meters to inches. Grid square spacing is also discussed and changed.
- [Instructor] The last thing you'll need to set up…before actually starting to draw the working unit setting.…This is critical for each design file…because you may have multiple users on the same file.…Or your project may be used on…another project as a reference file.…We'll get into more about reference files a bit later.…Under the settings menu, and then design file,…you'll see the design file settings.…So this is a little different than the user preferences.…That's more for the overall look and feel of the software.…This is for the specific design file that you're working on.…
So what we're going to be using here for working units,…by default the drawing comes in with meters and millimeters,…which is not appropriate to the projects we're doing.…We're going to be using inches and mils.…So we're going to change our master unit setting here…from meters to inches and then it automatically…will show the subunit as mils.…And then for accuracy you can leave it…set to four place decimal.…Under the advanced settings,…
