Output in Inches

Post by andrew » Wed Apr 06, 2016 8:26 am

From a QCAD/CAM user:
My drawing unit is Inches, however when I export, the G-Code is created in metric units.

The output unit is determined by the configuration you are using, not by the drawing unit.

If you have been using the GCode configuration, you can simply use the GCodeInch configuration instead which builds on GCode, but forces the output unit to be Inches (also with four decimal places instead of three).
