Number of digits in the model tree

Topaz II

Number of digits in the model tree

WF4, M080



I'm going through an assy to make sure all the densities are assigned
properly to make sure I have an accurate weight.  So, I've shown
MP_DENSITY *** a column in the model tree, however, it's only showing 6
places.  My units are KG/mm^3, so I need 7 places for the density.  For
example, aluminum is .0000027, but it shows as .000003. 



If I open the part and check, it takes the 7 digit value, is there a way
to force it to display 7 digits in the model tree?

RE: Number of digits in the model tree


This is controlled by config option param_dec_places.

Instead of increasing this value set it to 4 andvalues will be shownin scientific notation, which might be a better solution.
