Csys size?

Csys size?

Folks,

I have a dumb question regarding Creo 2, M100. Is there a way to enlarge the csys? My eyesight is getting worse with age and I find it increasingly difficult to see these puppies.

Best regards,

Ray Aviles

Re: Csys size?

For what it's worth, we are working on a project in Creo 4.0 to improve the appearance of the coordinate system.

It's not completely done yet, so the appearance might change a little, but here is a screenshot of the new CSYS:

In addition to having actual arrowheads, we will be providing the option for the CSYS to be zoom dependent and for the user to drag the length of the axes. This means you can set the size relative to the model and it will zoom in and out with the model.

Re: Csys size?

Text size for csys tag can controlled by config option text_height_factor with value (value as 50)

Re: Csys size?

Mahesh,

This does not appear to work. I searched for it in my config.pro and did not find it. I added text_height_factor with value of 75 but there was no change. I opened options again, and it's missing again. I think my corporate overlords may prevent me from modifying it.

Re: Csys size?

Ramon,

If your config file is overwritten by corporate config, you may try creating a new config file with that option and value to 30 or so and place that config file in your startin directory of Creo.

Re: Csys size?

Steven,

You may need to add that option in list.

Don't forget to mark the answer as correct for those that may search and find this topic.

Re: Csys size?

Technically the OP is asking how to increase the size of the csys itself, not the csys TAG (text).

Re: Csys size?

Tom,

You are correct although embiggening the text certainly helps too 😉 I'll give the "(text_height_factor" option another shot.

Thanks everyone,

... we will be providing the option for the CSYS to be zoom dependent ...

Very nice!  I can't tell you how many times I've zoomed into a model to try to see a coordinate system better only to be reminded that they don't zoom.

Re: Csys size?

What would be even better would be if the csys had the same function as what is possible in Siemens NX.

The cys has XYZ axis, point at centre & 3 mini datum planes all in the one feature.

I found for modelling it was a lot easier to work with and many planes in Creo can look very confusing.
