How to change block units - Milimeters to centimeters

Recommended Posts

vladbez

Hello

 

By a mistake i have drawn my drawing in millimeters.

Thus when i print it in 1:1 it is to small .

And when i click on my block and go to properties,

I can't change the block unit it is grey market.

is it possible to change that in centimeters ?

SCALE the block up by a scale factor of 10.

EXPLODE it.

Use WBLOCK to recreate the block, being careful to specify the new insertion units as CENTIMETERS.

... or just open the block editor and change the Block units

Good call nestly, I think you still need to scale it though, right? :beer:

... not in the block editor, but yes, when you change a block from MM to CM, it's scale property in the drawing will become 0.10, and should be changed back to 1 if the drawing is in Centimeters

Thanks nestly, this solved an old issue for me. :)

I had an INCH based dynamic block with lots of parameters and visibility states which I wanted to change to UNITLESS, but exploding a dynamic block, as you are well aware,

destroys all of the dynamic attributes, and so my efforts had been unsuccessful. All good now! :beer:
