How many metres ( or inches) is one unit in dynamo?


Dear all !

I load an element in revit into dynamo and make some transforms. But i realize that the unit in dynamo is too different more than in revit (my revit’s unit is metre)? So i wonder that what is the unit in dynamo? and can we exchange it?

You can change units in Dynamo, go to settings and set your units for Length, Area, Volume.



hi manh hung, the units is a much discussed issue in dynamo.

if you are using numbers with the “numbers” node dynamo assumes you are working in decimal inches.

if you are using the unit conversion nodes everything should be in the units you choose in the settings.

(at least i think the nodes behave like that).

I myself multiply with 3.2808 to convert.
