Ordinate Dimension Orientation

Ordinate Dimension Orientation:

I want to flip my Dimension text around 180 Degrees. 

My Parts 0 is at the left of my drawing and is the bottom of my part. And what is at the right would be the top. 

So I want the bottom of my text facing the other way.   

Any Ideas. I don't have room to flip my text horizontal.

Re: Ordinate Dimension Orientation

Unfortunately ASME Y14.5 (1.7.5.3) specifically states that baseline dimensioning should be read from the bottom or the right side of the drawing. I don't think Creo allows flipping the direction due to that limitation.

(the standard states "should" and not "shall" so your drawing would not technically be wrong if you could figure out how to get the text to show in the other orientation

Re: Ordinate Dimension Orientation

I know it's legal for me to do it that way so I should be able to.

 

This totally reminds me of a Futurama.

Don't quote regulation to me! I co-chaired the committee that reviewed the recommendation to revise the color of the book that regulation is in. We kept it gray.

Technically you are correct. The Best Kind of Correct.

Re: Ordinate Dimension Orientation

Haha, I love futurama.

What I was really getting at was that since the standard states from the bottom or the right, it's typical that Creo will NOT allow it to be from the other orientations. They like "shall" with no exceptions instead of "should".

Re: Ordinate Dimension Orientation

I think this is a product enhancement request for this functionality.

Re: Ordinate Dimension Orientation

Thanks, I'll also put a ticket into PTC directly to get it fixed. If enough of us annoy them they will eventually fix it. 

Creo and I are old friends but I have been out of it for about 4 years.  I am setting a new Cad System up and taking care of some big top models.  And I forgot how fun it is to clean up circular references.

That idea has been marked as Archived, whatever that is?
