2d drawing help - measurements in drawing are wrong

What am I missing? The measurements are different in the model and the drawing. In the model it’s 13’4” but in the drawing it’s 1’1 3/8”. Am I using scale incorrectly?

The drawings are great and as intuitive as I would expect. But I’m confused as to why the numbers are different.

That’s odd.

Just to verify, make sure the measurement type is horizontal. You can select from horizontal, vertical, or absolute when verifying a measurement.

Also, what method did you use to capture that dimension?

Did you tap the line, or select two points, or select two lines?

It’s a bug in architectural dimensions. We are working on a fix that will be released ASAP.


Still not able to use drawings without manually resizing in other programs. It seems like an issue with metric to AAS (American Arrogant System) conversion to me. My work flow does not require a “drawing” form, just a DXF or DWG file at 1:1 so I can have a part cut on the water jet or importing into Autocad or SolidWorks etc.
I’m making a drawing in Shapr at 1:1 but in autocad or SW it’s a different size as you can see in the attachments. (Version 4.6)
