What are you importing? A step file?
Worse.... a 3d Acad.DWG
Cheers, that does indeed work.
Unfortunately it only moves the problem.
Now instead of not forgetting to click the mm setting while importing one must not forget to do all those clicks in Acad.
The chance that the original drafter/designer is willing and able to adjust this in his template is not exactly great and besides it relies on them working with an actual Acad version (or a vertical of it)
Thank you though, it's a good solution to know.
Try System Options / Default Templates and point towards metric templates.
Select "Always use these default [...]" if you plan on using only metric.
Select "Prompt user to select [...]" if you want to select the proper template at each time.
Bonne fin de journée Peter.
Merci bien mais ça c'est pas que je besoin.
I'm responsible for making and maintaining all the templates we use (>30) and all of them are purely metric, that I'm very sure about.
To help clarify
I'm looking for a way, if possible, that this is set to mm instead of Inches independently of any setting in DWG, because those are also always metric.
Well, I just made a test and when my original dwg documents is in millimeters, this option in yellow is millimeters.
what version of Solidworks do you use Peter? I use 2014 SP 5.0.
