I am having an issue that may or may not be a librecad issue: When I create a drawing with the Application Preferences and the Current Drawing Preferences both set to units in inch saved as 'Drawing Exchange DXF 2007'. Then when the file is opened with another software package, for example Solidworks or Freecad the drawing units are not preserved.
For example I sent out a drawing of a part that was 36 inch x 36 inch but when the machinist opened it in solidworks it was represented as 36 mm x 36 mm and had to be scaled. The same issue occurs when the file is opened with FreeCAD 0.16
The question is: Does the DXF file format have some unit parameter that is being omitted by LibreCAD and when not detected the other programs are defaulting to mm? Or does DXF 2007 have no provision for this information? Or is it an issue with FreeCAD and Solidworks DXF import?
