Grant Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 Always been a problem for me. If you want the Import box to say mm instead of Inches in Solidworks. This is really strange: In Autocad type 'DDIM' (for the 'Dimension Style Manager') in the command line - click your current dimension style in the 'Styles' list so it is highlighted. Click the 'Modify' button. Click the 'Alternate Units' Tab. Now: Click the tick box for 'Display alternate units' to turn it on under 'Multiplier for Alt Units' make it: 25.4 for Inches 1.0 for Centimeters 0.1 for Millimeters Now Click the tick box for 'Display alternate units' to turn it off Now click OK button. Seems a strange place to take the variable from as it has no relievence to units as I had my units set to mm from the start. If you are having this problem - give it a go! Easier than writing a macro in solidworks as I have done that as well! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
