Part Unit Net Weight

I was just wondering what the ‘Unit Net Weight’ field is used for on the Part Detail screen. In my case my part is for 2x2x1/4 structural angle which is 3.19 lb/ft so does the unit net weight field mean anything if you can’t specify it in LB/FT? The dropdown only has LB and KG. I’m not sure that field would be applicable to raw material.


I’m pretty sure it’s just an informational field. It was there before the attributes tab and fields were added. You can use it for whatever you would like.

And the drop downs that you mentioned are whatever your UOM setup is, so that list can be changed.

OK thanks - that’s sort of what I figured. It would make sense for most objects just not raw material.

Unless I am wrong, it’s mostly used to calculate your shipments weight.
