.SKP files always expoted to Inches and the vdDocument.InsUnits = vdDocument.InsUnitsEnum.Inches vdDocument.lunits.UType = LUnits.LUnitType.lu_Architectural (display the length units as Feet) In order to do that length units and the coordinates are scaled depend of the vdDocument.InsUnits so if vdDocument.InsUnits is Inches or Unspecified , scaled with 1.0 Feet, scaled with 12.0 (one feet is 12 inches) Millimeters, scaled with 0,03937(one milimeter is 0,03937 inches) Centimeters, scaled with 0,3937(one centimeter is 0,3937 inches) Meters, scaled with 39,37(one meter is 39,37 inches)


In version 1001.0.3 when the vdDocument.InsUnits is Unspecified and exporting to SKP, assume as Inches
