    Imported file has wrong units

    Kevin Raley

      Hello all,

       

      I have imported the attached igs file as an assembly and everything imports fine no errors or warnings.   The problem though is when you measure the part its shows up as being 42.7in wide instead of 42.7mm.

       

      I do believe that somehow the problem is with the original saved file and is not a problem of the import process.  I have seen this on other files that have been provided to me as a contractor to work on.  I have no contact with the originator of the file.

       

      All I really need to do is switch the unit designation not the actual dimensions of the part.  I have tried importing into different templates both inch and metric with no difference in the end.  Is there something I am missing?
