I'm having a hard time figuring out why the pdfs generated by the CAD worker on our Windchill Server are different from the drawings manually printed to pdf from creo. Mostly commonly dimensions are flipped about a center line, but sometimes leaders lines are incorrect, or even angular dimension move! One trick we've found is that if the sketch plane of a feature is perpendicular to the view plane it seems to cause this issue. That is if a feature is sketched on a SIDE plane, but then the dimensions are shown on a FRONT view then those dimensions will often "move" on the printed representation.
I've already gone through all the config files, pentables etc etc that I can think of... Everything is the same between the CAD worker and our standard CREO installs. Does anyone have any other ideas what might be causing this issue?
From the CAD worker/Creoview:
Extra info: We're on Creo 2.0 M120, and Windchill 10.1 M040

Thank you Tom for your questions/troubleshooting suggestions!

Thank you Ben for your questions/troubleshooting suggestions!
I just saw this come through from PTC. Not sure if it's related to your case or not.
Thank you for pointing that out! Hmm... It certainly sounds like my issue, but it's on the wrong version of Creo.
We can try the resolution though and see what happens.
Well I feel silly, the CAD worker was running Creo 2.0 M060.
Our maintenance provider has been assuring us for months that we were on the same version, but after I finally got login credentials myself to check lo and behold it's on an older version.
