Do you know how to change the unit measurement MPa to kPa? I've tried to change the unit by getting Pa. My values are expressed as 0, 217e5, is there a way to change the notation in order to achieve a kPa value?

You can insert a User Defined Result, and type the expression you want.

Right click on Solution to see a worksheet of all the Available Solution Quantities and the expression for each.

For example, if you have the units set to mm, the stresses are shown in MPa. 

Insert a User Defined Result and type an expression 1000*SEQV and you will get a plot in kPa.
