Easily Change Units Type in SolidWorks

by John Koop, SolidWorks Specialist, TEDCF Publishing

There is a quick and easy way to toggle back and forth between Unit Types in SolidWorks.  This can be very helpful when working with one unit type and needing to convert to another.

In the bottom right hand corner of the SolidWorks status bar, there is a Unit System combo box.
