Just change your preference units like mines, Drawing and Paper Units = mm and Measurement System = Metric and after that restart Qcad and reopen the hyunday.dwg file and check again the size.
That is not how it works.
Open a drawing:
If I just open a drawing QCAD will use the information in the drawing to be used in QCAD too. No matter what are my preset preferences. As we already know this drawing opens with the info that it is in inch. That isn't correct.
Yes, we can now change the unit below drawing preferences and adjust the dimension settings but that isn't the idea. I have to trust the provided information in a drawing.
Import a drawing:
If I import a drawing QCAD will use the provided information in the drawing to import and if applicable convert the drawing. If I have set my target drawing to mm QCAD will scale a inch drawing 25.4 times.
That is what also happens with this example drawing. After importing into a mm drawing the car length is 108200.79 mm ...
