Model Tree allow the display of model units in Column drop down.  I have an .asm but the models come in various units.  I was to see the models with incorrect units and quickly fix.   Do a quick recalculate and regen once or twice to update PRO_MP_MASS and my weight parameter.

I can add parameter columns:  PTC_MATERIAL_NAME, PRO_MP_DENSITY...but not Units

Yes please!  We are really struggling with this.  The density may look right, and the mass may look reasonable, but if the unit system is not what we think it is, the actual mass will be drastically different!  We need some way to either see what unit system these numbers actually represent -or- we need these columns to display their values based on the current assembly's unit system, NOT based on the part's unit system (just like running a mass properties report does.)

The number of times I have had to go look thru the mass properties file and try to find a bad density value based on improper units.

I've done this for years and never thought about how easy it would make that process if I could just show the units in the model tree.
