Both countries use metric, but there's still room for error.
SI is metres & millimetres. CGS uses centimetres. IIRC, the French preferred CGS. The OP mentioned cm, anybody expecting mm will be out by a factor of 10.
Now add in conversion between cad vendors. Transferring data between AutoCad & non AutoDesk products can often involve a metric to imperial conversion (1:25.4 or 1:0.03937). Add in a scale of 1:250 and you're looking at the difference between 1:25.4 and 1:25. Which is enough over the length of a wiring loom for it to be two firkins big or two firkins small.

Can't wait for him to close twitter down, then wonder why nobody is listening to him anymore. A bit like a 5G mast burner wondering why t'interwebs is broken.
