The Autodesk Inventor software recognizes and processes most commonly used units of measurement. Every model or drawing has a default units system. Values that you enter in dialog boxes are assumed to be in the default units unless you specify a unit name.
The default units system is specified in Application Options. To change the settings, click the Configure Default Template button on the File tab of the Application Options dialog box. To set units for model files, select the desired units in the Configure Default Templates dialog box. To set units for drawings, select the desired Drafting Standard.
As you enter values into dialog boxes they are assumed to be in the default units system for the file. You can override the default units for a single entry by adding the unit name after the value. For example, 0.05 in. or 3 mm.
