NX Drafting inches to mm

Greetings,

I am using the Linux version of NX.  Creating a 2D dwg from a 3D part, I am having difficulty changing the dimensions from inches to mm.

 

Any help would be great!

Hi @Engineer_One,

 

What are the circumstances that led up to this change in unit?

Was the 2D drawing file created using a different unit that the 3D model?  Were both files created using inches but you now need to dimension in millimeter?  The reason I ask is that it might be easier to convert the units of the parts using ug_convert_part than continually changing the units of the dimensions.

 

That said, for existing dimensions you can right click any dimension, choose Settings and under "Text > Units" you can change the Unit.  Multiple dimensions can be selected to complete this in a single operation.  Going forward, you can select "Preferences > Drafting" and then "Dimension > Text > Units" and change the Unit to Millimeters.  New dimensions will be created in mm.
