Modifying Property Data Format

Hi,
I’m developing a workflow to assign property data to corridor solids. That part is working :smiley:
I noticed, that if the drawing was created with the Civil 3D metric dwt, after exporting corridor solids, the automatically created “Standard” Property Data Format is set to Cubic Feet instead of Cubic Meters, thus creating wrong Automatic Property Data Value for Solid Volume.
This can be handled if the drawing is created from custom .dwt, (but sadly refencing the dwt not changing it). So as a fail-safe I try to override the units within the script, without success. The script runs successfully and sets the Unit Type, but not the Unit. Any ideas what am I missing here?

                utin = ut.InternalName

                    break
                i += 1
            #Set unit type
            #fut = UnitType(ut)

            # Commit before end transaction
            t.Commit()
            pass

# Assign your output to the OUT variable.
OUT = utype, utypeunit, utin

Edit: Also, please help me understand what does Int32 mean in this case:


I wrote 10 in the constructor, and it seems to work, but I have no idea what i’m doing :smiley:
