Project Unit Settings

Project administrators can adjust project settings to set project preferences. You can access the project settings on the Settings page in Trimble Connect for Browser.

Set the standard units to be used throughout the project. Trimble Connect has expanded unit settings for the project system and allows users to specify display precision on each unit e.g. Length, Area, Volume Angle and Measurements Length.

Unit setting support varies by application.

Notes

Each user in the project can chose their own display units. (They are not shared throughout the project.

If you select Custom for the Unit System, you will be able to combine units from both Imperial, U.S. Survey and Metric systems.

In order for properties displayed in the 3D Viewer to be converted to the specified unit setting - the correct IFC Property Type must be used:

  • IfcLengthMeasure - Length
  • IfcAreaMeasure - Area
  • IfcVolumeMeasure - Volume
  • IfcMassMeasure - Weight
  • IfcPlaneAngleMeasure - Angle
