Eiger Software

So we signed up for a trial version of eiger this past week. We use Inventor at work and were told that eiger uses .STL files.
So as i uploaded my first file, i noticed that everything is in metric units. Is this standard and if it isn’t, how do we change it?
The uploaded file is supposed to have dimensions of 5in x 3.5in x 2.5in, and when uploaded in the software it was 5mm x 3.5mm x 2.5mm.

Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure how to change it permanently, but once you import the STL, on the right side under “part settings” you can change the original units to imperial.

I haven’t used Eiger, but when you export the STL you can specify the units to export under the options. See here: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/inventor-products/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2014/ENU/Inventor/files/GUID-59FB702C-F37A-4DEA-ADCF-51AD8A219C9B-htm.html
