Metric units when exporting DWG/DXF

Can Global Mapper please allow us to choose our units when exporting DWG/DXF files? Despite 95% of the world using metric, our files are rather frustratingly still in feet, which causes all sorts of issues.


  • Hi Steve,

    I export/import dxf and dwg files almost daily to/from AutoCAD and GM and I've never had the imperial units problem that you mention. If I export dxf or dwg from a metric GM workspace (say from GDA94) I always end up with a metric file in AutoCAD. I think it must be a settings issue.

    If you want to message me directly I'm happy to share screengrabs of my settings with you...
