ug_convert_part within Teamcenter

We recently found a file, that was created in the wrong units, and we would like to convert it.  I'm familiar with ug_convert_part in native, but I could use a "how to", or a hint on where to find it in the Teamcenter documents.

 

I'm assuming you can do this?

Directly it’s not possible in NX Manager Mode.

The user needs to export the part to native, convert then import it back in.

The reason is the parameters have both value and unit fixed in Teamcenter
integrated mode.

It's possible to do this in Teamcenter, but it's not OOTB functionality.

 

You'd need to set up the NX Refile Dispatcher Module to submit NX parts to along with customizing the NX Refile script to use the units conversion switch.  The NX Refile command in newer versions has a units conversion option.
