When using Sheetmetal.
You are using the FLATEXTENTLENGTH or WIDTH or AREA Values in your drawing. You would like to use a different unit for these Values than the units you are using in your drawing.
Go to Solution.
You can create an Ilogic Rule in the SheetMetal Document to generate custom Iproperties.
The Rule can be looking like that :
iProperties.Value("Custom", "extents_length")= Round(SheetMetal.FlatExtentsLength/1000,8)& "M"
iProperties.Value("Custom", "extents_width")= Round(SheetMetal.FlatExtentsWidth/1000,8)& "M"
iProperties.Value("Custom", "extents_area")= Round(SheetMetal.FlatExtentsArea/1000000,8)& "M^2"
This is an example if you want to change them in Meters when starting from mm, and rounded to the 8th decimal.
You can trigger this rule to run every part geometry change.
Then you can create a textbox in your drawing implementing these Iproperties Values, and not FLATEXTENTLENGTH which are Read-Only.
