I am trying to create a drawing with dimensions in mm to 2 decimal places for tolerance purposes. I have one dimension which is 24.00 and when I set the number of decimal places to X.XX it displays 24 instead of 24.00. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I am using Creo 4.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If metrics standards say not to display trailing zeros how would I communicate the tolerances for those dimensions so they are +/- the standard +/- for X.XX in my drawing table? Instead of the +/- for X.X? If that makes sense
It's been some time since I have used metric (iso standard) but I believe that you are not allowed to use that method to define tolerances. I may be wrong so someone who is familiar with recent ISO would have to confirm that statement.
Trailing zeros are NOT allowed in dimensions for tolerance purposes on metric dimensions.
The method you need to use is to explicitly add the +- tolerance to your dimensions.
Reference ASME Y14.5-2009 section 1.6.1.
If you are using ISO 2768, you have your table that drives the dimension tolerances depending on your selection of class.
