I'm having to adjust the accuracy settings (1/32 to 1/64) of the dimensions at start up of each new part (located under document properties).
How can I change these settings to happen at start up?
You can create a part template with these settings and save in your template folder.
Read the Help file section on Document Templates.
Basically create and save a template with all parameters set, and call up that template when staring a new part.
