Incorrect mass unit in Solidworks drawings

By Sami Gourani on 06 Mar 09:45 2 answers 0 comments

I have a problem with Solidworks showing me the wrong mass unit in the drawings. I have everything set to grams but in the drawings it shows me in Kg. But the worse is that if i have a part that weights 150 g it shows 150 Kg and not 0.15 kg. Please help me with this frustrating problem.

    Are the part dimensional units correct? IE if it was drawn in meters and not millimeters this kind of error could show up

    I think i fixed it. My drawing sheel title block had Kg in it, so it just put whatever weight my part is before Kg. Now i changed it to g but i still would like that solidworks automatically writes the specified unit in the drawing instead of me because sometimes if the part is too heavy i should put Kg instead of g, but maybe the solution is to have different templates for each weight unit..
