Decimal Places Disappearing in Drawing

Hello,

 

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.

There is options in the drawings setup (under FILE-PREPARE-DRAWING PROPERTIES-detail options CHANGE) that is probably removing trailing zeros.

In general, drafting standards for metric (ISO) say that you do not display trailing zeros.

Re: Decimal Places Disappearing in Drawing

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

Re: Decimal Places Disappearing in Drawing

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.

Has the dimension been "rounded", we recently upgrade to 4.0M050 and had a similar problem with an existing drawing where I couldn't get the decimals places to show.. Dimension in sketch had been rounded

Re: Decimal Places Disappearing in Drawing

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.
