Define Table Edges Thickness in Pen Table File

Hello,

If I change the model edge thickness in the pen table, the table edge thickness is changed too. How can I change the model edge thickness without changing the table edge thickness?

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

by default table lines have Letter color assigned. Entities colored with this color are drawn with pen 2 (by default). If you set pen 2 thickness in pen table then this affects all entities that have Letter color assigned to them.

 

You can use Line Style command to change the color of table lines.

If you assign System color to table lines then these lines will be drawn by different pen #.

If you assign User color to table lines then these lines will be drawn by different pen 1.

Hello,

I think I found out how to work with the pens. But I did this by trial and error because I was not able to find a suitable instruction.

The article in the help center does not adequately describe how to assign elements to pens. Especially, which pen refers to which element of a drawing is unclear and confusing. Example: Where do I find the connection between the pen descritpion and the assignement if the Creo language is not English?

Kind regards,
