set a default measure tolerance different then rough

set a default measure tolerance different then rough

In part properties it is possible to ask the statistics of the part. For instance weight and volume. The tolerance therefor is by default set to Rough. This is too coarse and can lead to costfull errors. it should be possible to set a default value (eg. 1%). Preferably this is a setting that can be stored in the site or corp customization directorie.

Hello Ward,

that you can adjust yourself.

Change the command "Part Measure"

"get_vol_prop :for_part"

in

"get_vol_prop :for_part :TOL :PERCENT_TOL 1"

Part Mass Properties 1 percent.jpg

Hi Friedhelm

this is indeed a good idea, but it only covers half of the problem. if you demand a report from the part properties dialog box, then the tolerance cannot be set to a value by default

Hi Ward,

but it works.
When you call up the dialog box with the modified command, 1% is indicated also in the report.

yes it is correct, but you are always calling up the Part Measure command. I'm going to Part Properties first>statistics and there i ask for the reportpart+prop+tolerance.JPG

Hi Ward,
you are not easily satisfied 

If you want you can try

part_prop :display_ui :the_part :percent_tol 1

Best regards
