I have this problem with CREO 2.
Using Draft Datum / Draft Datum Target / Box
The baloon created for Datum Point visualization is small for text.
The two drawing options
set to ZERO don't work .
Any idea ?
Thanks a lot
Since it's a symbol, I don't believe there is a simple solution.
I think the only solution is to create your own custom symbol that is sized appropriately.
Thank you Stephen
Please consider that this symbol is created automatically when you define a Standard System Datum Target.
If you use the BOX option and select a dimension, the text will be larger than baloon.
I'd like to avoid to use my own symbol in manual way !
being inch based, I have my .dtl options for these as:
I also have some other settings:
but also modifying these options
the final diameter of symbol doesn't change
and the text is outside the symbol !
I guess that default symbol is designed with fixed size and is intended for short texts, such as A,B,...
Please ask PTC Support, whether you can configure symbol size.
I officially asked to PTC support and , by now, there is not reply ...
So they are evaluating my topic .
The Baloon Size can't be modified
and, if the text is longer than baloon ,
it must be placed outside the baloon according to ASME 14.5M 2009 (section 3.3.3).
But the PTC symbol doesn't support this condition.
At the moment , if necessary, you must create a new customized symbol.
