    Are you opening it in 1.3.x or 2.x? If you try to open a graph made in 2, in 1.x, it says its corrupted...

    Yep, that's the issue. I'm looking at building it from scratch (even if some of the code blocks are headscratchers to me...haha)
    Thanks again for giving me a boost on it!

    Anytime! I'll be back in the office in 90 or 120 if you want to rebuild it on zoom and talk through it.

    If you do projects in the US and also overseas where they use metric, it isnt "just the units" that change: The materials themselves are different. A "straight conversion" on a 6 inch stud, is 152.4mm. That isnt what gets used some places in the world. They use 150mm.
    Fair Point - also another option is leaving the middle ages and using metric in America, but thats not likely to happen any time soon.

I'm hoping there are some tips from this group that I haven't discovered on how to manage the internal data in a more universal way:
    What are the conversion rules, correspondence table or just rounding?

    Yeah. I'm always amused how many people like to say this as if those of us delivering projects here get an option. We will just snap our fingers and concert the country and entire manufacturing industry. Sure. Most of the smart people here are pro metric. That isn't relevant.

    Nurlan- correspondence table. Hence the graph could be expanded with dictionaries to do them all at once if someone better at dictionaries wanted to.

    So, i had intended for the sample up above to just be a *get it started* example, but here is the example of how i would actually do it with Dictionaries, should you want to NOT run them "one at a time."

    The Code Blocks make up lists of: Material Names, Width it was converted from Imperial, Width we want it to be in the future. They get made in to Dictionaries, and replaced from there.

    This is the "correspondence table" of the sizes for the units, when the materials themselves need to have there values changed based on the material standards of the country. Its not a unit/rounding/revit/simple-math thing. Its just: What sizes are the products in different countries.
