w to import as a normal size?

A lot of DXF files come in with Metric dimensions. Divide the dimensions by 25.4.

is there a way to do it for all items imported or do i have to manually select each one and go to size and divide each one by 25.4?

You will need to do the math to determine the part size. You should be able to scale it in the drawing program the dxf was created in too. Then open the drawing and highlight the parts you want to resize. I just surrounded all of them at once in the guitar body above. Then click the shape tab and click “lock”. Enter one number and the other will change.

In the DXF, I changed:
