Units of Measurement AutoCAD Tutorial

The AutoCAD Drawing Units dialog box shows how to set up length and angle units for your drawing. The type of length units may be architectural, decimal, engineering, fractional, or scientific. You may also specify the scaling units for a drawing that is dragged and dropped onto the drawing. Angle units may be decimal degrees, degrees/minutes/seconds, grads, radians, or surveyor's units. These units are used in AutoCAD's coordinate system for drawing and dimensioning objects.
