I have imported a DXF file to RFEM. Unfortunately, the scaling of the model is not correct; it has to be reduced. How can I change the scale?


In the ASCII Format DXF (*.dxf) dialog tab, you can change the settings for the data
exchange. It is recommended to check the parameters, especially before the import. You may have set an incorrect length unit. In this case, check the length units and set the desired length unit.
