Is it possible to change the units of measure in the iProperties from lbmass to tons for instance? I deal with very large, heavy concrete objects and tons is the way we show mass. Also use cubic yards instead of cubic inches.
Here is where you can change units. I believe that volume is based on the length setting, however there isn't yards or tons. I don't think it's possible to add it.
Thank you for the help. Definitely doesn't look like you can add different categories in there. But very helpful. Do you know if there is some way in a parts list to create a custom column and convert the lbsmass to some other mass unit?
You can use ilogic to convert then link it to a custom property..
Sorry, I am new to this. Here is what I did. I created a user parameter called mass and checked Export Parameter. I created a rule that is as you mentioned, mass = iProperties.Mass/2000. I called the rule mass conversion.
In the new user parameter that i created I have the following questions:
1. Should this rule be in the part or assembly?
2. What should the units be (ul)?
3. What should the equation be?
The Driving Rule is showing the "mass conversion" rule I created.
Once I get this correct, how do i get the information to show up in the parts list, if you can get it to that is?
Thanks for your help and your patience with us new comers.
