Creo Parametric - System Parameters "linear_tol_0_0, linear_tol_0_00, etc" question

Greetings

We know that Creo Parametric uses system parameters "linear_tol_0_0, linear_tol_0_00, etc and "angular_tol_0_0" etc to set the CAD model tolerances for 2 and 3 place dimensions. For whatever reason, our current start parts and formats have user defined parameters "TOLERANCE_1_PLACE", TOLERANCE_2_PLACE", "TOLERANCE_3_PLACE", and "TOLERANCE_ANG" to drive the drawing tolerances in our format's title block.

We are now working on new start parts and formats and would like to use the system parameter tolerances, but we have a need to keep our old user defined parameters ("TOLERANCE_1_PLACE", etc) functioning. We tried to set up relations to drive our user defined parameters from the system parameters. We have tried various forms of the names for the system parameters, such as "linear_tol_0_0", "linear_tol_0_0()", and "linear_tol_0_0(""), but none seem to work.

Is there a simple way to achieve the relations that we're looking for?

Nick,

linear_tol_0_0 is very special system parameter (according to my experience).

I think you cannot use it in relations, because thsi functionality is not implemented.

The only "place" where you can put linear_tol_0_0 is Note/Annotation in model using &linear_tol_0_0 text string.

Ask PTC Support for more information...
