Automatic Dimensions...

Post by TopSolid2007 » Thu Apr 17, 2008 4:23 am


We receive several parasolid files from our costumers that we need to create the drafts and make all dimensions for the people at factory...

Does anyonde know a way to make the cilinders dimensions automatically?

First of all what kind of dimension you use, and what do you want to create?
Anyway here comes some tips for you:

The important thing is to create the projected views with the option "Views create 2d curves" selected (from File->Properties->Projection parameters).

Center lines - use the option Curve->Axes->Projected Axis->"selected the view on which you want to create the axis"->Automatic->(you can define the minimum and maximum radius or just select OK - All the axes will be created.

Oridinate dimensions - use the normal ordinate dimension tool, select the origin of the dimensions, select the first ordinate dimension and then you can use the multi-selection tool to select all the entities you want to dimensioning (use the filters options).

If you need more information please let us know.
