AutoCAD units, units, and more units...

Hello everybody,

 

I have been looking on the webs for a long time now, but i cannot seem to find a 'simple' answer to the following.

What is the diference between:

 

- INSUNITS

- INSUNITSDEFSOURCE

- INSUNITSDEFTARGET
- DWGUNITS

 

When i set INSUNITS, INSUNITSDEFSOURCE and INSUNITSDEFTARGET to '6', wich is Meters, the DWGUNITS still are 'millimeters'...

Why? And what is the variable to change this? Should i change this?

All webpages dont give a simple awnser for me...

-DWGUNITS has nothing to do with the INSUNITS. The INS variables are related to inserting blocks, images, etc.

In Express, select Tools, System Variable Editor, and can use INS* as search. Has good details.
