    Opening dxf in SW 2009  -  Wrong dimension units

    John Sutherland

      I have opened a dxf document showing structural profiles, and elected to convert to SW entities, which turned out to be blocks.

       

      The dimension primary values are numerically correct, but the units are inches instead of millimetres.

       

      Document properties>Units system = Custom.

       

      Changing Units system does not correct the problem, it just moves it because SW believes that the beam is 612 inches deep.

       

       

      How can I correct the units?
