just saw ILKO DIMITROV fix and it may work.
I never had this fully resolved but found a (poor) work around.
Under project data I set my length units (format for dimension units) to FRACTIONAL & precision 1/16 in lieu of ARCHITECTURL & 1/16. This will update all dwgs BOM (test first)
Of course when modeling I need to go back to Architectural & precision 1/16, then when I update and create dwgs I go back to FRACTIONAL & precision 1/16 (you always need to reset precision too). You need to go back & forth throught-out the project like this.
The BOM should show width in inches when updated in fractional (like attached), but this poor work around needs to be fixed by Autocad!!!!!
Janet - please send in a fix for this so when using "poroject data" - "length units" - "Architectural" the BOM WIDTH is ALWAY in INCHES (not feet)
Attachment: S9-0 Layout1 (1).zip
Thank you for the fix.
In the BOM I see the material WIDTH under DESCRIPTION in (feet-inches).
All my shops (for 30 years) & In the AISC Steel Detailing Manual 2nd edition called out a plate width =<12” as (¼” x 12 x2’-0”). I’m new to AS but asking can this (always inches) be applied in the width AS BOM in lieu of how is shown now (¼”x1-0 x2’-0”)?
