Hi, attached is a bounding box size macro. Can anyone convert or add fractional inches to the macro please?
We are on SW2017 for another year.
you mean this?
Hi, I just tried this and getting a syntax error. Also forgot to mention only need inches, no feet. (Example: 38-1/4" inches but not 3' 2-1/4").
This would be so awesome if I got this working because shop guys are used to fractional inches rather than decimal. So decimal has been causing issues lately.
it is only a message that I don’t forget to tell you that your code possibly would not work if you run the macro second time. You can delete it. It is not part of code.
OK, I removed that note and the macro runs now. However, nothing changed, it is still decimal units and not fractions.
Did you test it on your machine and get fractions? Just asking in case I'm doing something wrong on my end.
Thank You for your help.
and this one?
Ivana, I found a glitch with this macro. If for example dimension is 2-1/8", custom property shows as 2".
If I do 1-1/4" then it shows correctly as 1-1/4".
I tried fixing it but no success. Any ideas?
OK, I this got fixed in another thread. The version in that thread is in sixteenths rather than only eights of inch, but main thing is that the lengths are correct now.

You'd be better off teaching them decimals rather then letting them continue with fractions.... Unless the place you work for, works in Structural Steel and the tolerances are + or - 1/8" and even that would make me cringe, having the guys base everything on fractions... Accumulating dimensions are the worst, plus if you want things to assemble better, tighten the tolerances, open up the tolerances and you expose yourself to an assembly nightmare, been there done that.. and it ain't fun, don't matter what the guys say..
