Feet & Inches

Hello all -



I have a student who is doing some room layouts for management in CREO2



How does one get the dimensions to display in feet/inches.

I used to know how to do it in WF - but alas . . . .

You need config options and detail setup changes.
I have these two mapkeys in Creo that turn this on and off, the required files are attached. Obviously the paths will need to change to match your environment.

Feet & Inches

Hello all -



I have a simple building layout drawing I'm doing for one of our directors.



I cannot get the dimensions to show as feet & inches.

I've changed major units to "yes" - and changed properties on the dimension
to fractional



What else am I missing?

Feet & Inches

Config options
dim_fraction_denominator 64
create_fraction_dim yes

detail file
!
! These options set drawing dimensions to foot inch display
!
default_tolerance_mode NOMINAL
dim_fraction_format AISC
use_major_units YES

I have A config and .dtl file with just these settings, and a mapkey to load them.

Thanks all (David) - this did the trick - I missed the .dtl file.
