AutoCAD Plant 3D has a standalone Report Creator editor that allows the user to alter existing report templates and create new ones. One of the most frequent questions we receive is how to adjust the units for the values reported, such as how to change the displayed millimeter units for meter values.
The Report Creator supports calculations, so the best method is to divide the displayed mm values by 1000 to achieve meter values for that displayed field.
As an overview, the Report Creator allows you to modify your report in these ways:
- Change the basic layout
- Change fonts and colors
- Set up calculated fields
- Filter and group the data
- Add totals, page numbers, watermarks
To change the display units from mm to m as a calculation, see page Page 197 (page 16 of 255 in the PDF), shown in part here:
