ISO surface finish symbols still follow the ISO 1302:2001 standard. An SPR 998114 was filled in January 2003, and the reolution was:
Can this now, 9 years later, be included in PTC plans?
I agree with you.
This is absolutely necessary, to be able to create standard-compliant drawings!
When you're saying "we are not supporting ISO 1302:2002" what does that mean exactly. Pardon my ignorance. I've worked in half a dozen different industries as a mechanical engineer but I haven't ever had to specify surface finish beyond the common symbols.
Would compliance with the new standard just involve a new surface finish symbol... or do you want an interface for specifying the symbol sort of like the GTOL interface?
I have a far, far better symbol than the default one provided by PTC. If that alone would help you, I'll be glad to share it. Somehow I think that's not what your asking for though.
In my opinion it's PTC's responsibility for always providing symbols according to the latest standards.
Otherwise often adaptions by a user are necessary and this shouldn't become a habit.
I completely understand and I definitely agree...
However, I have a symbol that I think will meet your needs. At the very least, it provides much more control over your surface finish than you have with the default symbol. Would you like me to send it?
Can you share your symbol if it meets ISO 1302:2002 ?
