Isn't there a quick way to set a block that has been created at 1=1 with metric units to insert into a "architectural" or "Engineering" united drawing. (without up-scaling it by 25.4)

Insert it scaled up, explode it, make a new WBlock.

Look at the SYSVARS

Specifies a drawing-units value for automatic scaling of blocks, images, or xrefs inserted or attached to a drawing.

 

INSUNITSDEFSOURCE

 

Sets source content units value when INSUNITS is set to 0.

 

INSUNITSDEFTARGET

 

Sets target drawing units value when INSUNITS is set to 0.

Thanks guys!

It looks like for consistency, I'll just have the drafters use the conversion factor on the drawings they download, then they will be ready when they want to insert them.
