The metric system is the tool of the Devil

[ Edited ]

Is there a way to get SE to recognize english units through it's API. I REALLY hate having to convert everything.

Bob,

 

To my knowledge, no. Solid Edge stores everything internally as metric. Sorry.

Bob,

 

I'd suggest doing what I do with angles, add something like the following to your code:

 

Friend Function GetInch(ByVal meter As Double) As Double

Return (meter * "Sorry - don't have a clue how to convert to inches ")

End Function

 

It's not much, but it makes the code a bit nicer to look at

 

Cheers

Calum

Bob,

 

the Code from Calum completed:

 

Friend Function GetInch(ByVal meter As Double) As Double

Return meter/0.0254

End Function

Thanks guys. I had gotten to the point that I couldn't remember at what points I did the conversions. This will help.
