Units of Measure


Units of Measure

I am extracting the mass properties using ProSolidMassPropertyGet. I
would also like to know the units of each item that is returned in the
ProMassProperty structure. I understand how to get the principal unit
system but that only identifies the base units (length, force, mass, time,
temperature) and not derived units. Does anyone know how to retrieve the
derived units?

The derived units can be seen by clicking Edit->Setup->Units and clicking
the Info button for one of the unit systems. How do I get these derived
units? Do I have to derive them myself?
