Permanent units in solidworks


ok sorry that this is such a nubey question but I cant figure out how to change all the units to cm in solidworks. I’m tired of going and changing it for every new part I make and even when I do that, when I’m changing dimensions it keeps wanting to use inches which is extremelly annoying. I cant seem to figure out how to implement the templates into the whole application-what am i doing wrong?


Hey Simon,
Do you try to change the properties?
and then saved as a part template?


Yeah I think that sounds right. It just needs to change them for the dimensioning too( not smart dimension but the ones on the side bar.
