Does anyone know how to create a composite datum reference frame via syntax?
How can I carry the position sym onto both level of the syntax as you would see with a typical composite tolerance?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Something like this - currently I do not know of a way to encapsulate two rows within a singe "box"
Basically if you had this:
With the @[position@]
creating a box out of two rows with a single positional symbol shown in this '2 line box' - see attached picture.
I was not able to do this with syntax.
This is right out of the ASME Y14.5 standard. If Creo is going to claim to support this standard then it needs to allow creating these correctly. Probably should push this up to the P.M.
Also see section 8.6 of the standard - "Composite Profile".
I denied for composite frame creation using syntax (@[...@])...
With GUI we can create composite frame.
Brian is trying to create this using syntax "creating a box out of two rows with a single positional symbol shown in this '2 line box'.
I misunderstood. I thought he was trying to find any way to create the symbol shown in the picture attached to his second post. Creo is indeed capable of that. I didn't realize he only wanted to be able to create it the old, manual way.
By the way, adding the circle M makes the thing very unhappy...
How did you get the customized datum reference frame? What version was this in and did you create this using the GUI? In Creo 3.0 there is no option to name a plane A[x,y,z], nor is there the option to add it within the GDT tool - at least that I could figure out. Care to elaborate how you achieve that?
You're right, Maheesh. I suppose the solution is to hope for the update to 4 or 5 comes sooner rather than later. Thank you both for the insight.
The entire reason for requesting a solution to do it the old way was in response to this post:
You seemingly can't do it the 'new' way either?
