I named a driven dimension parameter so I can reference it elsewhere in my model. The problem is that the driven dimension is in inches and the reference parameter does not allow me to change the units. I would like to use that driven dimension in my model and divide it by the pitch in a pattern to get the correct count for my pattern. The pattern dialog box is expecting a unitless input.
I tried creating a unitless user parameter that referenced the reference parameter but that did not work.

Found the answer here
looks something like this
Now You have a parameter let's call him "driven", unit: "in"
Now, create a new numeric parameter, choose "ul" as unit
We will call this parameter as: "driven_converted"
To convert use this expression:
Now you can use this "Driven_converted" to use in other parameters.
Remember that: if you want to use this parameter as a array qty, you will need a integer, maybe you have to add another prefix:
floor(expr) -------- unitless (Next lowest whole number.) ex: 2.8 - > 2
ceil(expr) --------- unitless (Next highest whole number.) ex: 2.8 - > 3
round(expr) -------unitless (Closest whole number.) ex: 2.3 - > 2 2.6 - > 3
