Why are some dimensions in AutoCAD showing as incorrect? Hi, im just trying to add dimensions to a floor plan ive created in AutoCAD in paperspace and for some reason, some of the dimensions are incorrect while others are. For example. i have a room opening which is 2530mm, and when i go to do the dimensions in paperspace, it says the distance is 12? Does anyone know why this is? And how can i fix it? Thanks!

You need to dimension your drawing in model space, not paper space. Paper space represents the extents of your drawing sheet, (A1, A2 etc) while model space represent "real-world" extents.

Anyhow, this is a forum for discussing Revit, not AutoCAD ;)

Hi Makulina and welcome :)

You are VERY welcome here- but as your question does not directly relate to Revit, I must move it to the "Other Topics" forum.
