Format WKT to nearest meter

Hi,

I have a polygon feature class and I want to produce a text file where each feature is a row with an ID and the polygon geometry formatted as Well Known Text (WKT).

 

To start with I am looping though the features and I use the .WKT property to produce the result.

 

My problem is that the WKT is often formatted with coordinates reported to 12 decimal places. I need to round the coordinates to the nearest meter. Ideally I want to be able to do this with other types of geometries so I'd prefer something else then looping over the rings and vertices.

 

Is there a way to do this? I tried to set arcpy.env.XYTolerance and arcpy.env.XYResolution to 1.0 but that had no effect.

 

Any hints?

Filip.
