Problem importing DXF: dimensions not matching

I want to create an electronic component from sketch. From this question ( https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/fusion-360-electronics/create-electronic-component-from-sketch/m-p/10... ) it was suggested I export as DXF. 

 

ISSUE

However I am having troubles with importing the correct dimensions. 

 

I've used the following procedure:

EXPORTING AS DXF

With the 1) Units set to mm and 2) dimension around 47mm,  I did 3) File -> Export -> typeDXF

NEW ELECTRONIC LIBRARY

The I created a new electronic library and footprint: 

  • File- >  New electronic Library -> save.
  • Create new footprint ->  save

IMPORTING DXF

In command line: Run -> import-dxf 

 

Then I have imported with settings to inches

And settings to mm:

Both times I get the WRONG MEASUREMENTS 

 

I've attached the dxf file

Hi  leodavide.torchia2,
I hope all is going well.  I used your dxf to create a PCB outline, then I Group/Copied it to the library to fine-tune it.  Let me know if this works for you. I attached the library.ANT.png

Sorry, could you expand on your insturctions?

I've tried:

results in a misshaped connections.

TRIAL FORM UPLOAD DXF VIEW AS SKETCH

I also tried: 

Upload file -> open  (whcih displays hte dxf as a sketch) 

create-> 3DPCB (tried also the other) 

But the result is a single block without traces visible.

CURRENT ISSUES

I am not sure how to: 
1. Create a pcb OUTLINE FROM dxf 

2. redimension the shape from library/footprint window
