    Drawing units sync with Part or assembly

    Jean-Seb Langlois

      Is there a way to link drawing units with those of the Part model in view specified in sheet properties??

       

      Problem is: when we use the Volume property in parts properties to print out on a 2D drawing, units of this volume is linked to the Part file units of volume. As a result having a part setup to IPS and a drawing made in mm, the volume will be calculated in cubic inches... which is not coherent information.

       

      Resolving this issue would be time saving for everyone by having a single drawing template updating properly upon 3D part file settings.We usually set the 3D parts document properties unit to reflect reality units.


      I've done some research and have seen many posts here and elsewhere over the web, but it looks like no one ever asked solidworks for including this option in future releases. I will
