Adding multiple dimensions in one dimension in Creo 2

Adding multiple dimensions in one dimension in Creo 2

What I'm trying to do is add the through hole and counter sink dimension information to the through hole dimension. I've tried using the "&" and "@" symbols but that didn't work. This is the information that I used:

 

Through hole dimension name: add1

Counter sink diameter name: add2

 

My text string looks like this: @D THRU, C'SINK &add2

 

This is what I get: .140 THRU, C'SINK &add2

 

If I shorten the "add2" to "d2" it get the thickness of my sheet metal part. Don't know what the connection is there.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Adding multiple dimensions in one dimension in Creo 2

I know nothing about Creo 2, but in WF2 & 4, you can only use Shown dimensions as parameters in that way, not Created dimensions.

The 'add' prefix suggests your CSINK dimension is a Created dimension.

Unless, of course I'm wrong...

Thanks! That was it! I added the Shown dimensions and was able to get what I was looking for.

Good! Glad it worked.

Re: Adding multiple dimensions in one dimension in Creo 2

You can use Created dimensions this way, but not in a dimension. You can create a note with a leader and have the text of the note be "&add1 THRU, CSINK &add2"
