It depends on "how metric" you really want it to be. If you just want all
the dimensions to read metric units, tinkering with the dimension style and
updating all the dimensions could be enough. Whoever works on such a drawing
would have to keep in mind the difference between the units entered and
those annotated. (I do this often because wood products here are imperial
and the laws are all metric.)
If you want a truely metric drawing, then you'll have to scale the all the
entities in the drawing by an appropriate factor, then revise all your
dimension style and update all dimensions, and finally rescale all vieports.
To go from inches to millimeters as "units" scale by 25.4
To go from inches to meters use 0.0254
