use mm in command

Post by bigtalljim » Fri Mar 30, 2018 7:03 am


So, I have recently had a few issues with some drawings for my business. ( glass business) I need to draw parallelograms.

Ive been searching for the past couple hours on a way I can just input the millimetre measurements into the command.

Basically I need to draw shapes with height, width, angle, run measurements and level measurements.

The guys in at our manufacturer use a similar program and he was just entering eg. 1260 into the height etc into command and getting his desired outcome.

Is this something that is possible?

Hi bigtalljim - welcome to the QCAD Forum.

To answer this question we need more details ....

Is your drawing Unit mm? If not mm what is it then?
Do you need mm instead of a different Drawing Unit?
Do you need 2 different Units (e.g. inch and mm) on a Dimension etc.?
Can you show us an example? Drawing or screenshot?
What is your QCAD Version? Pro or Community?
