Dual Dimensioning

Dual Dimensioning

Hi All,

I know this might be a silly question, but I need your help over here

I want the dual dimensioning to be active, whenever I open the new drawing. But unfortunately that is not happening, instead I'm changing the "dual_dimensioning" value to "primary[secondary]" each time. which I feel time consuming. One of my friend suggested me to write the configuration file.

But it was of no use. Guys its a bit urgent, please help me over this.

Regards,

Yogesh

Re: Dual Dimensioning

There are two ways; drawing templates with everything preset or a detail.dtl file the way you want it.

This is the config.pro option to have Creo use your file:

drawing_setup_file <drive>:\<path>\<filename>.dtl

Yogesh,

  1. open a drawing where dual dimensioning is active
  2. File > Prepare > Drawing Properties
  3. click change in Detail Options line
  4. click Save button and save drawing configuration file ... remember path to directory, enter eq. my_drw into File Name Field and click OK
  5. exit Creo
  6. open/create config.pro file located in Creo startup directory
  7. enter new line ... drawing_setup_file path_to_directory\my_drw.dtl
  8. start Creo, create new drawing and test dual dimensioning

Martin,

I did what you said, but it is not really working out,

I'm fedup with this, for each and every drawing I've to keep doing this.
