Config option to allow a gtol to a created dimension?

Config option to allow a gtol to a created dimension?

Team,

I can't remember! What is the config.pro option that will allow you to attach a gtol to a created dimension in drawing mode.

ProE gives the error: "You cannot link a part/assembly gtol to a drawing dimension".

Thanks

I think the one you may be looking for is:

allow_refs_to_geom_reps_in_drws

It is set to 'NO' by default.

Hi Greg,

Verify if your config.pro option create_drawing_dims_only is set to NO (default). If it's set to YES, you will not be able to link the gtol to your created dimension so change it to NO.

I often have to toggle that config option since my company policy is to not create dims in the model, only in the drawing.

This solution didn't work.

Nope. Didn't help.

Re: Config option to allow a gtol to a created dimension?

If you created your dimension before you made the config. pro switch (create_drawing_dims_only NO), then that dimension is still created in the drawing. Recreate the dimension and try making the gtol again.

Re: Config option to allow a gtol to a created dimension?

Hi,

I use mapkeys to switch back and forth so I can put a dimension in on the fly and be able to attach a GTOL to it.  Then I can quickly switch back to my default setting and not have to go out into the options area.

 

We are using Creo 3.

 

Hope this helps...Brian

 

Here are the mapkeys:

mapkey ddon @MAPKEY_LABELDrawing Dimensions Only NO;\

Re: Config option to allow a gtol to a created dimension?

Create a datum sketch in the model that represents that dimension; then attach the Gtol to that. Don't poison the model with drawing dimensions.

 

Preferred approach: redefine the model so the feature is controlled by the dimensioning scheme you want on the drawing.
