Has anybody successfully done this? I have an external thread which I want as my Datum -A-. Pro/e doesn't allow you set a datum to a note. Options are free, in gtol, in dimension, on geometry. Please help.
Datums are not supposed to be notes, they are features. One thing is if want a note with a box, then use @[-A-@]. While not perfect it would give you the look on your drawing. This would simulate the datum look. Otherwise you would have to pick the axis as the datum.
Yes, the datum is actually the axis through the pitch cylinder of the thread. My issue is I can't tag the note to indicate that as the GD&T standards tell you to. The box in the note trick works but there is no "jackstand" tagging the box to the leader line so its not perfect but it may have to do... I tried the &dtm_A and that's exactly what was in the note....no datum symbol. Any other suggestions? Thanks for the help!
