    Units in Document Properties

    Wayne Bird
      When we upgraded to SW2008 I can no longer change the number of decimals for mass properties. Can someone please tell me how I can change this? I was able to change this in SW2007.

      Thanks

          With '08 you have to click in the box in order to get the drop-down arrow to appear. Then you should be able to change the # of decimals.

              I can't to click in the box in order to get the drop-down arrow to appear because the box is grayed out. I found out the number of decimal places for mass properties is driven by the number of decimals in the length properties under the Mass/Section Properties. Therefore, one cannot have different number of decimal places for the different mass/section properties.

                  Wayne,

                  Just to make sure this is clear, the decimal places for "length" refer to length of mass properties, not of dimensions. All the calculated properties (Length, Mass, Energy, Power, etc) will be set to the decimal length specified in that box.

                  Dimension Lengths and Dimension Angles will be as per the boxes above that, under "Basic Units".
