November 7, 2020 at 5:44 pmEagerToLearnSubscriberHello everyone,nI would like to model the cross section of a continuous fiber reinforced material (for virtual testing) in space claim (with static structural at first).nAs soon I use dimensions below 0.1 mm, I get the error message: One or more of the created curves was below the minimum size for use with sketch constraints. I can't switch the units to micrometers (for whatever reason).nCatia for instance can work with units that small and I also know - for design spark micrometers are explicitly mentioned (http://help.spaceclaim.com/dsm/4.0/en/Content/Units_options.htm). Now I was wondering: Can the units be switched in Space claim?nRegardsnMiken
