How do I convert Metric (mm) dimensions to Imperial (Inches) in AutoCAD?
1. Open the ‘Dimension’ toolbar and click on ‘Dimension settings’ to open the ‘Dimension settings’ dialogue box
2. Select dimstyle in use by clicking the white window on the left and select ‘Modify’
3. Click on the ‘Primary units’ tab and set the ‘Unit format’ drop down menu to ‘Architectural’ and the precision to 0’-0”
4. Save the changes and the existing dimensions will be displayed in imperial units.

How do I 'hard convert' a drawing from Metric to Imperial units?
The unit type typically used in U.S.A. is known as "Imperial" units (feet & inches). Other countries use the "SI" or Metric system for drawing units. The drawings on our website is drawn in metric units. To scale the objects in the drawing from mm to inch or vice versa, set the drawing to your desired units and simply select everything in the drawing and use the scale command to resize everything to your desired measurement unit. Use our UNIT CONVERTER to obtain the correct conversion factors.
