Imported drawing with Imperial dimensions is re-dimensioned incorrectly.

The attached drawing TEST.DWG has Imperial dimensions. If the drawing is imported into QT2DD and converted to a .LCM drawing all dimensions are divided by 25.4 (The number of mm in an inch). This applies regardless of which conversion type is selected during the import process ie "Convert to metric", "Convert to Inch", or neither box ticked.

If an attempt is then made to generate Gcode from the .LCM file the part which would be produced is absurdly small.

Please fix.

Regards, Max.
