NX 7.5, converting units, inch to mm, mm to inch

If you got a model from internet, www.grabcad.com 's library or from some other source, you may end up with the "wrong" units on your model.
In NX 7.5 there is no drop down menu to make a unit conversion between metric and imperial units.
But there is a way anyway. In NX they did add hundreds (?) of DOS-programs that works like drop down menu command, but they did not added them the drop down menu object in the NX program.
If you'r familar to the CMD-command promt, go to the picture, otherwise follow the instruction.

Go to Search in windows, You got it down by the windows logo (start menu)
Write CMD in the search, click the Command promt that appear.
Now write C:\program files\nx 7.5\ugii\ C:\cadcam\model.prt -mm and enter
the "C:\cadcam\model.prt" should be you own part name and folder and "-mm" the conversion you want to preform I assume that you use -inch if you'r going that way, but I'v never tested this.
see the example down below
I'm sorry for the "too big" image, but it's hard to see othervise, I hope that this doesn't kill the layout on your mobile unit
