how do I change the unit dimension in draftsight? it is opening my dxf files with mm dimension and I need inches. so when I copy and paste it in solidworks it is mm and is not the right size
I just scaled the whole sketch in solidworks to the size I wanted. It wouldn't work the other ways eveything stayed in mm
Did you look under the options settings?
I did but when you open the dxf file it makes the dimension mm even if it isnt when you save the dxf file in sigmanest. Then when i copied and pasted to solidworks its 3mm holes insted of 3" holes
Is the dxf file when it is created starting as inches?
Are the units in Draftsight before importing the dxf set to inches?
It was saved as inches in the other program so i opened up draftsight and changed the unit to inches, then i opened the dxf file and copied it. Then I went into solidworks and created a new part and changed the units to inches. Then when i tried to paste the sketch from draftsight it wouldnt show up in solidworks just blank. then i made a new solidworks file and didnt change the units and hit paste and it showed up with mm dimension.
The setting is under format, unit system
