Dimension Change

We have done a number of drawings for a project before we realized that the dimensions were set to inches. Is there a way to convert all these drawings so they display in mm.

Hi,

I think you will have to switch units in every model and every drawing.

Model:

Click File > Prepare > Model Properties > change in Units row > activate appropriate units in Units Manager dialog box

Drawing:

Click File > Prepare > Drawing Properties > change in Deatil Options row > load drawing option file prepared for "millimeters" (for example change drawing_units option value)

Actually, I think there is a way to do this...

In the drawing, go to File > Prepare > Model Properties > Detail Options [change].

Set dual_dimensioning to secondary and dual_secondary_units to mm.

Give that a shot...

Hi David,

Does any of the reply on post help you?

Hi Mahesh

I have asked the Creo3 Teacher concerned to try the solutions with the students and let me know the result. I will report back when I

have a response.
