  1. i am deriving plates from a solid model (which is set to millimeters). on the sketch, i project geometry and finish the sketch (as we normally do). then when i extrude, i always get INCHES as the unit of extrusion. of course, its easy to just type in mm, but i am wondering why this sort of things happens and what the solution will. please help!
  2. I understand how the current extrusion command works - You have a 2D polyline profile and you apply the extrusion command to that, getting your 3D shape. However, I have a drawing full of different sized extrusions based on the same 2D polyline, and now I want to change that initial 2D polyline without having to manipulate each polyline separately. I thought it would be much better if the initial 2D polyline were referenced, allowing you to swap that inital 2D polyline with another 2D polyline. Is there a way - or a plugin - that is available to do this in AutoCAD? FYI - the profiles are used in kitchen doors, and I want to be able to simply change the door profiles without resorting to re-extruding the whole lot.
