How to override dimension in Drawing?

Hello Everyone,

I have a problem about override dimension in drawing eventhough I've use "@O" in dimesion properties in Pro-E WF 5.0 and the option OVERRIDE hidden state in dimension properties. I think the problem at Drawing Options, But I'm not getting.

Please help me.

Thanks,

Naveen Kumar Gongu.

Hello,

you can set @O for dimension created in the drawing, only. You cannot set @O for dimension shown in the drawing (i.e. created in the model).

Is the dimension on the drawing a driving dimension? (i.e. one that you used show annotations on the drawing?) Or is a dimension that you placed on the drawing (driven). I think only driven dimension can be overridden and not driving dimensions.

Try placing a new dimension for the same location and use the @O (letter "O" and not zero). This should work and then hide the first dimension.

Thanks, Dale

Thanks Martin. That's was I was trying to say but not quite as eloquently.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for reply.

I'm trying to override dimesion called from model, not created in the drawing. Is there any solution?

"override dimension called from model" - into a drawing, correct?

Basically you will have to hide that dimension and create a new one in its place that you can then overide.

Re: How to override dimension in Drawing?

I added a datum tag to a driven dimension, but found there is no way to show it in the drawing, unless I recreate it. boo. Is there no way to overide a driven dimension?
