metric setup how to


New member

I'm new to Inventor Professional (2008) and using the Educational Version. How do I set up Inventor to use metric units once and for all, every time I start up the software? Could someone please help me by telling me in which menu I will find the global setting for this.

Thanks in advance.

At the time of Inventor installation, set the units whatever u required.

In Inventor, we can set units (Tools - Document Settings - Units)
