To display Bolt length in metric under Bill of material description.
User requirement is to display bolt lengths in millimeters in a Metric Project OR in a Mixed Metric Project under BOM of OpenPlant Isometrics Manager. See below image where similar bolt length shown in imperial. With latest SS6 version, OpenPlant isometrics Manager introduces format specifier where user can use various format types to display as output. Some of its use can be seen in below discussion on how to manage the output using this functionality. Below exercise would straight away convert the value from Inches to Metric by multiplying with 25.4. It is also advisable to discuss the standard availability of BOLT length going to be used for project where Metric length is required. For any Metric length, spec should get corrected with rounding value of 5 and hence no conversion should be required.
