Metric Drawing format sheet creation

Metric Drawing format sheet creation

Metric Drawing format sheet creation

(OP)
I need to create a new metric drawing format sheet. Everything I have tried, still comes up with dimensions coming in as English and not metric. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Metric Drawing format sheet creation

You need to change the drawing units in the drawing setup file - in creo, go to File - Prepare - Drawing Properties and click on change detail properties. one of the properties in the list is drawing units - change to mm and this should solve your problem.

RE: Metric Drawing format sheet creation

Dimensions come from the model but you can change the display to anything you want with the following detail options

dual_dimensioning
dual_dimension_brackets
dual_secondary_units

With proper settings you can get an inch part to display mm dimensions.

RE: Metric Drawing format sheet creation

Drawing_units needs to be set to metric.
If you can't edit the file, then your sys admin has it locked and he/she will have to make the change.
You can try to save a copy of the *.dtl file to your local start-in folder.
