Product:      Inventor 2015

Author:         Kent Watson – Technical Consultant



1.      Since installing Inventor 2015 every time you start a new file it is in imperial units and you want to know how to change it to metric units

2.      The default drawing file uses *.dwg format and you want to set *.idw as the default format for Inventor drawings


Solution 1:

From the home screen click the “Configure Default Templates…” link then select Millimeters and ISO and click OK


Solution 2:

Click on the Tools tab > Application Options (or Application menu (Big “I”) > Options) > Click on the Drawing tab > set “Default Drawing File Type” to “Inventor Drawing (*.idw)
