Grind is one of the functions in AutoCad's new ARX object Oriented design set.  It allows you quicky to design 3D objects.

To Draw in metric you should have an option on the top task bar to set your desired measurement unit.

Under Format, go to units.  Set this to the metric units you are wanting to use.

Firstly,

to draw in a metric inviroment you need to set the follwing variable "MEASUREINIT" to 1
type "measureinit"  <enter>
1 <enter>

Sets the initial drawing units as imperial or metric. Specifically, MEASUREINIT controls which hatch pattern and linetype files an existing drawing uses when it's opened. Also controls which template is used.

set the variable variable "MEASUREMENT" to 1
Sets drawing units as imperial or metric for the current drawing only. Specifically, MEASUREMENT controls which hatch pattern and linetype files an existing drawing uses when it is opened


you can set these variables (and others in a template *.dwt) and use it when you create a new drawing.
to do this start a new drawing set the variables and save as a template.

Secondly "What does GRIND mean and FAO 2 REQ D mean?"
I assume this is a note on a drawing? grind means to wear down, or make flush.
2 REQ D = two required.
FAO = fillet weld allround
