Converting Units on export

Hello All,

 

I have a part designed in Inches.  I'd like to export it out as a step file in mm.  Is this possible?  If so, how?

 

Thanks

Hi Jerry,

There does not appear to be an option on the UI or in the settings file.

You could use the following workaround:
Create a new millimeter part file and use "File > Import > Part" to import your inch part. You will get a "Metric-English units conflict, automatically scaling part" message. Choose OK and then export the geometry using the STEP translator. Perhaps someone has a better solution?

Regards, Ben

Hi Jerry,

 

You can use the ug_convert_part.exe.

This file is found in UGII folder and must be executed with Command Prompt.

This executable file can convert your part from inch to mm or vice-versa.

 

Below the link with more information.

After you convert your part, you can export to STEP.

 

I hope this help.
