How to add tolerance on drawing (Creo 4.0)

Hello Guys,

 

During the using Creo 4.0, I have some problem when I try to add tolerance after modifying dimension.

Tolerance is no appeared after I modify dimension myself. I want to add +0/-0.25.

 

How can I solve this..? Please support me.

Thank you in advance.

You need to modify your *.dtl file to allow tolerances.

Thank you for your feedback.

 

My problem is that I can see tolerance when I put it on real dimension. (ex. 1.3+0/-0.2)

But, I can't see tolerance after I change dimension personally. (ex. 1.3 -> 2.5 using the '@O 2.5')

So, I want to put in tolerance even if I change dimension.

If you are just overwriting the dimension, then just add the tolerance as text using superscript/subscript.

Copy and paste this line in to the dimension text

{0:@O}2.5 {2:@++0@#}{3:@--0.2@#}

 

Why are you overwriting the dimension? In general, that is VERY poor practice.
