Change the model unit from inch to mm by interpret dimensions

Change the model unit from inch to mm by interpret dimensions

How to change the model unit from inch to mm by interpret dimensions (1inch becomes 1mm) in Creo Elements/Direct Modeling(CED)  ?

I can't find the function for this ?Maybe scale can slove it,but I repeate it everytime when I receive the file.

I think that Creo can  change the model unit from inch to mm. Why can not CED do it ?

Thank you

The Scale command should allow you to do this; use a factor of 25.4.

Creo elements direct works diferently that autocad. In autocad 1 in is 1 mm, but in CED 1 in is 25.4 mm. There is no way without using scale to convert a 1 in. block into a 1 mm block.  The main problem will be when you create yoru drawing. The part will be smaller, but by scaling the view you can increase the size to what you want.
