Hello,

This might seem like a stupid question, but I'm producing drawing of part which has to be measured and cut by hand. Units are cm. In most places, I use tolerance (rounding) of .1 (for example, dimensions round to 0.1cm). But in some places where accuracy is needed, it would be great if dimensions could also round to HALF of a milimeter. For example, 0.03 or 0.06cm would round to 0.05cm, instead of 0.1 and 0.2 respectively.

In other words, tolerance of .1 is too large, and .12 is too small. I need a middle rounding point, so that dimensions would round up like 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, 0.25, 0.3 etc, instead of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 or not rounding at all.

Can this be done?

You set the denominator you want at Tools > Options > Document Properties > Units. For example, if you want to display down to the nearest 1/32", you would enter 32. However, if the dimension is an even 0.25", it will show as 1/4", not 8/32".

You can over-ride these settings in an individual dimension's PropertyManager. For example, if a certain dimension is 12-5/16", but you want it to show as 12-1/4", then you'd click in the box for

Override Unitsand enter 4, where the 16 is shown below. By doing this, the dimension remains parametric, so that if the dimension changes it would still show to the nearest 1/4".
