    Try these 3 tutorials.

    The first is about units and scales, the second about dimensioning (and dimension scales), the third is about metric paper sizes and plotting to scale from modelspace.

    If you need metric drawing templates/borders then you can download a set here:
    Im intelligent enough to know that I dont know everything; but I'll tell you all about it anyway.
