Hi,

 

In Robot , the units used are the KN and M

 to get reactions :

 

MysumReactions = robapp.Project.Structure.Results.Nodes.Reactions.Sum(Num_Cas);

FXX = MysumReactions.FX / 1000.00;

 

why divide by 1000 to get the FXX in  KN

 

Thanks

In ROS API you can read:

 

"All functions of ROBOT Object Model use the standard SI unit, independently of the current settings in Robot options."

 

So, all forces you get from robot api are in N.
