How change Mass unit in part list

How change Mass unit in part list

hi friends
I created a customized part list. it includes a mass column. the unit of mass is "gram"
how can i set it to show mass in "kilogram" or something else?

best wishes

RE: How change Mass unit in part list

Hi JavadM,

For NX12, the default output from $mass attribute in Part Lists is in "gram". To change to Kilogram, we can scale the values using steps below:

1. Go to the Settings tab of the column. Go to Cell tab, check Evaluate Cell as Formula, and set Decimal Places as you preferred.

2. Go to Column tab. Input extra text into the Default Text, the final text is <W$=@$MASS>*0.001

3. Update your part list to see the differences..

Hope this helps.
