what's the difference between setting the desired units precision here:
do they control 2 seperate precisions? or does one override the other?
thanks in advance
The top one is for dimensioning in your 2D while the bottom one is the precision when you build your 3D model
the first one controls displayed dimensions.
the second controls various property managers and the configuration tables (i.e. right click on a dimension and select configure).
if i change the precision on the 2nd one, it changes the precision of all my dimensions....
so, if the 2nd one overrides the first one, whats the point of the first one?
In the bottom one, you can set it up to 10 decimal places or whatever you want; however, in your 2D dwg, it makes no sense to have 10 decimal places with tolerances or the guys in the floor will yell at you

as Jody Stiles has pointed out that you can find a quick answer from SW help (online or SW software)
I did some checking, and here is what I've come up with. It appears that the setting at Units controls more than just Dimensions, as Jeremy Feist said above. Changing the setting at Dimensions overrides the setting at Units for Dimensions, but only until / unless the setting at Units is changed again. This could probably use some attention from the programmers.
