HI all


could you pls tell me if there is anywhere that i can set the Unit of pipe length of the BOM?

by default,the unit is M(Metric project),but we want to set the unit as MM.


And we can see in the Material list of cut piece,the unit of pipe cut length is MM.

i have test somewhere is the ISOconfig.xml file,but do not success.

so if anyone know how to config it ,pls tell me .thanks.

In the Isoconfig.xml file.


Go to or find <Style Name="MetricPipeLengthAlt" UnitFormat="Decimal" Precision="Precision2" Prefix="" Suffix="M" Scale="0.001" Decimal="." />


change the values of Precision tp Precision1 (can be adjusted the tolerance of Precision1 to 5 and suffix to MM.


try that and see if its okay.
