Can any one help me on this ?
Cutlist table shows length in 3 decimal and i need to change it to single decimal.
Any update on this, it's driving the shop floor nuts here. Cutting a 2,500mm pipe and on the drawing it reads 2,500.67
Yes this has been a pain since weldments arrived. I mentioned it to other SW users and they couldn't see why you the table would be different to the main dimensions.
I've tried using the usual table functionality but can't get it to work, it's driven by units options and can't be overriden in the table
Been trying to figure this out also.
In the drawing file, go to document properties, units, set decimal places here. One vary important point here, go to tables, weld, set trailing zeros to show. This should do it.
Unless something has changed recently in the latest SP of 2013 or in 2014, I don't believe that it is possible.
There is an enhancement request open under SPR #610386 in regards to this.
Five years on from the post and more from the inclusion of Weldments and we still can't control the decimal places locally in a table.
I though that as SW is a MS partner that formatting of tables should have been easy to implement .
Oh well, the user always wants more. .
I had this problem and found a solution that worked for me. This may be a newly added feature; I cannot remember from the previous version. I am currently using Solidworks Professional 2014 SP1.0
From within the drawing go to:
Tools > Options... > Document Properties > Tables > General > Trailing zeroes: and change it from "Smart" to "Show"
After rebuilding, the length of items in the weldment cut list show the number of trailing decimal places specified in:
Tools > Options... > Document Properties > Units > Length > Decimals
Note that this does not allow the ability to individually control the precision of weldment cut lengths in the cut list but does allow them to be collectively controlled. If the document properties are changed to give the lengths in the cut list a certain number of decimal places, say ".12" for example, then all dimensions in the drawing set to ".12 (Document)" will also be changed. So the dimensions in the drawing will need to be manually set to whatever precision is desired.
Hope this helps.
This would be a good thing to be able to control at the drawing level. Indeed.
I have another one...
We often need to create drawings with dual dimensions, where metric is primary and inch is second (since the drawings are going to be fabed over-seas). In doing so, though, the cutlist gets populated with a mix of inch and metric. Inch from bounding box parts, (which get converted to metric in the cut list) and the inch-centric text descriptions from weldment profiles.
So, not only am I trying to control the precision of the units, but the units themselves!
I have not found a way to fix this, and I can't convince the fabricators to take inch as primary.
The only work-around is to not use bounding box and type in the value manually.
Anyone have other suggestions?

Sorry Aron Lasky ... obviously to hard for SWX to fix... but can it be really ! Your subscription dollars at work - NOT!
