Metric dxf import

dear carbide team

I find it odd that carbide create imports a dxf in inches, even if units are set to mm in settings. this is really not logical behaviour and will also confuse a lot of users. I can easily change my units in rhino from mm to inches and then back again after exporting, but that’s not really a good workflow, is it. also, a fix to import to mm should be really easy to implement… please?

thank you!


Any word on this? I haven’t yet received my shapeoko but after some initial software testing noticed this also. This will really put a damper on the workflow. It seems elementary to metric users.

And here I find it odd that my mm-exported DXF imports with units in inches, and I can’t seem to find a way to tell it not to … or to convert it to mm (and resize my design to relative size) after importing.
