How to find assembly component with different unit system?

How to find assembly component with different unit system?

How do I find a component that is set to metric units?  All of my components are set to English units but there are several that are set to metric and when I export it to a step file it creates an error where components that are metric are scaled incorrectly.

I am not aware of a system parameter that is searchable for units set in a model.

 

The most expedient fix for this is to force consistent units in the top level assembly model.

 

Use the following command sequence.

 

File > Prepare > Model Properties > Units > Change >Include Submodels > Set

This fixes everything.  Thank you all models are correctly scaled.

Hi,

maybe because of English units the volume of English models is "small".

You can use something like this:
