Drawing Units

Hi all,

I received a dwg file which unit have set up to Meters. So whenever i measure or draw the lines it displayed the unit in Meters. I want to know how to change the unit to Millimeters so that when i draw a line in 100 units...it should be 100mm, not 100m. Any idea pls.

Thanks.

How did you measure or draw the lines ??????  Let's say your UNITS is decimal to be used with metric.

 

There is list, distance and there is dimension command, list and distance will not tell you it is meter or milimeter, dimensioning shows m or mm is how you chose it, you must scale the drawing to get it to show the unit you prefer.
