In an IFC model some measurements (length, height, etc.) are shown in millimeters.
Is there a way to transform them from millimeters to meters?

Transforming the unit of measure means that you'll need to export the IFC model again making sure to choose the correct/desired unit of measurement.

Alternatively, you can try using a scaling factor in the PriMus-IFC measurement rules dialog box when calling up the various IFC measurement variables (e.g. $BaseQuantities.Length$/1000 if the model is expressed in mm or $BaseQuantities.Length$/100 if cm if the model is expressed in)-> watch the video: how to define a measurement rule
