Add ability to display tolerance limits to dimensions in Family table repeat regions so that the dimension limits can be displayed in a parametric 2D repeat region on the drawing.
A dimension of a designed part on an engineering drawing is often useless without a tolerance, yet there is no clear way to display several dimension limits in an associative/parametric repeat region table. More than 80% of the time we have to break the associativity with the model, turning the table into dumb text (i.e. breaking the connection with the model) simply because we cannot display tolerance limits!
It strikes me as ironic (and frustrating) that PTC's (Note that P stands for PARAMETRIC) 3D design parametric software still cannot display parametric driving dimensions on an Engineering Family Drawing in a repeat region table thus requiring the user to break the parametric dimension into dump text; which is always a bad practice for any dimension! What is a design without tolerance? Often the difference between cheap junk and a high quality long lasting product.
Please add this useful functionality to Creo
A knowledge base article was written for ProE 2001 that there was no way to display tolerance limits in a FT and therefore 2-d repeat region in an associative way. It suggested a work around by using relations and then inserting each limit dimension as its own family table column based of of the plus-minus tolerance. It has been over 10 years, 2 'revolutionary' releases and over 7 Product significant releases. Yet this aspect still not improved.
