Diameter dimension attachment

Diameter dimension attachment

Add an other invert possibility on diameter dimensions

Be able to show a diameter dimension of a cylindrical shape with only one arrow and across the center point of the cylinder. (Similar to an arc dimension).

I agree with you.

According to the standard ISO 129-1 this is definitely allowed.

Thank you for the official standards and for your 2 European votes !

Here is the official PTC workaround (manually entered, non-parametric text):

I find it entertaining that the author of this doesn't know:

  1. How to enter a symbol directly in the Dimension Properties dialog
  2. How to embed the created diameter dim using &adXX inside the radius dim., which would have created a parametric diameter dim.

I find it depressing that this product idea was created over 4 years ago and PTC posted their "workaround" 4 days ago.

depressing ...
