I have a model in imperial units with the parameter: Pin_Dia = 7mm.
Now I'd like to use this parameter in a text field on a drawing, but its value will only display in inches.
(I don't know if it's called a field in Inventor, at least that's what the equivalent feature is called in AutoCAD.)
I managed to fake it by creating a new parameter in inches: Pin_Dia_Metric = Pin_Dia * ( 1 ul / 1 mm ).
Now this shows up in the text dialog box as "7.0 ul." It still displays correctly, since the text field only shows the numerical value, but I really don't want to clutter up my Parameters list with a bunch of duplicated values for metric conversions.
Is there a way to change the units for just this one text field?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What are your document units?
