Can any body tell me, how to get the required units in the saved STEP or IGES file with the help of the unit system in the part file from which they had saved?
Thansk & Regards
open the file in word and look at the header It should give you the units. IN, MM like 2HIN = inch
I'm getting bit confused with question as you said "how to get the required units in the saved STEP or IGES file". Do you mean you want to find what are the units in a saved STEP or IGES file, then use Lenny's method. And if you mean something else, please elaborate.
Thanks Deepak & Lenny,
But I have to elaborate more,
Suppose i am having the Solidworks part with unit system IPS & in save as process if i save it as STEP or IGES & if i want units for the STEP & IGES as MKS so, for this, are there any setting in save as process or any where else?
When you open an step or iges file it assumes the units that are setup
in tools>options>system options>default templates. If you want different units
you should change it in your template file or create as many as you need
representing the units you need.
to do what you are asking you must change the units of the file the save out the step or iges, then you change the file back to the original units. just so you under stand when you save out a export like iges and step all that is saved is size and nothing else.
