I have tried using both the SetPresentUnits and SetPresentUnits_2 methods in the ETABS API when running my script to draw my framing. It works and places the elements with the correct geometry, however the default viewing units in the model returns to imperial, rather than staying as it has been set in metric.
Has anyone overcome this?
