how to change default units to metric for inventor2013? Now I have them set as imperial.
thanks and regards
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can select units by using special templates, whe setting up a new file.
By default here with a German version, the template is called Norm.ipt and is in millimeters. And there are subfolders, too, for English or Metric setup.
I'm not sure if you're asking about changing a single file, or about changing templates?
To change a single existing part or assembly file, open Tools tab > Document Settings > Units tab and change units as you please. To change a single drawing, you will probably need to create some metric styles.
To change to metric templates as installed, Application Options > File > Configure Default Template... button.
