Chamfer dimension display


I recently updated to Creo 3.0 and am working through some bugs and/or changes. My latest issue is than my chamfer dimensions don't always show the way they should.

In the attached image, the 1x45° shows the way I want but the 0.2x45° shows up horizontally instead of normal to the chamfer. If I change the location of the dimension to a projected view, it shows correctly, but I need it shown in this view.

Hi Greg,

I did some testing and found that there is an issue with the dimension, which was fixed via an earlier SPR.  In order to implement the fix in your drawing, please do the following:

  1. Retrieve the drawing
  2. File > Prepare > Drawing Properties
  3. Detail Options > change
  4. Option: update_drawing
  5. Value: 1116081
  6. Add/Change > OK > Close > Repaint

That will update the 0.2X45 dimension.

Please give this a try and let me know if it worked or not.

Thanks,

Amit

Hi Greg,

How exactly is the chamfer on the right, 0.2X45, created, in the model?

I was trying to recreate it on my machine to see how the dimension appears in the drawing, but it is not clear how the chamfer geometry looks on the model.

If possible, please upload that model here and I can take a further look.

Thanks,

Amit

Here are the model & drawing files.
