Set the units for models

by sunithbabu on February 1, 2012

When you create a part or assembly, the units of measurement in the template sets the default units of measurement for the model. You can change the default units for the active document.

  1. Click Tools tab Options panel  Document Settings to open the dialog box.
  2. Click the Units tab to open it.
  3. To change the setting for any of the measurement types or precision, click the arrow next to the edit box. Select the setting from the list.
  4. When you have finished the desired changes, click Apply to save them.
Note: When entering a value in a dialog box, you can override the default units by entering the unit name after the value. For example, 0.05 in. or 3 mm. Autodesk Inventor converts your entry to the default units.
