DIMENSIONS IN REVIT

Unlike Autocad the good or the worst part about REVIT dimensions is that they can not be fooled around.we cannot override dimensionS in revit. So we need to be accurate with what we are drawing.

We can actually set the precision of the dimensions .

select the Type Properties of a dimension, under the Text group parameters you will find the Units Format button. Un-check the Use Project Settings box, then choose your preferred rounding increment.
