I would like to get Solidworks to default to the Inch pound .000 precision when I open up any new work. How do I do this?
Start a new part file. Under Tools-> Options, go to Document Tab and make the changes you want to be in every new part (units set to IPS, precision to .000 for length) and then save the file as a part template (File, SaveAs, set file type to Part Template) The next time you start a new part, those settings should be there. Make sure you're saving it in the location that SolidWorks goes to get the template.
