Selecting Units in the Find Similar Dialog Box

You can change the units that are displayed for material properties in the Find Similar dialog box.

The options available are the same as those that are available when you edit a material using the SolidWorks Materials editor.

  1. In the Material section of the Sustainability task pane, click Find Similar.
  2. In the Find Similar Material dialog box, on the right side of the Environmental Impact section, expand the Units drop-down list to select from the following:
    Option Description
    SI -N/m^2 (Pa)
    English (IPS) Inch, pound, second
    Metric (MKS) Meter, kilogram, second
    SI -N/mn^2 (MPa)  

    The changes appear in the dialog box headers and in the materials list that appears when you initiate the search for similar materials.
