Show dual dimensions in a drawing table

 

if "fam.inst.param.value" != "0"
$convert = "fam.inst.param.value" * 25.4
errorInvalid data type combination at right side of expression
endif

 

If I add in the relation as shown in this link, i get this message.

 

If fam_inst_param_value<>0
errorInvalid symbol 'fam_inst_param_value' found.
convert=fam_inst_param_value*25.4
Endif

 

Any help would be appreciated. I am using Creo 3.0.

Hi,

please create and upload example FT model + its drawing.

Re: Show dual dimensions in a drawing table

Please find a small example of a part that is family table driven, and is dual dimension on the drawing.

 

Looking to see how to get dual dimension displayed in the table.

 

Thanks.

Re: Show dual dimensions in a drawing table

try this:

In your part file generic create a relation of MM_Width = A*25.4

Then add a user parameter to your family table of MM_Width

This should pull the value of MM_width from the model for each instance.

Re: Show dual dimensions in a drawing table

Thank you for the response. My concern is that this was a simple example, but there could be situations where we have numerous values that are FT driven. Keeping the MM column after the INCH might not always line up properly. What I am looking for, and in many suggested ideas this was given, was to have them BOTH in the same box on the drawing. I have attached an image showing for the PLATE-DR-4HOLES, the "A" dimension of what I am looking to do. In this example i just added in the MM value under the INCH value to show what I want for my result.

Looking to see if anyone has a solution that will work.

Re: Show dual dimensions in a drawing table

Take the MM_width parameter and put it in the same cell as the inch width, so the cell has 2 lines.

I use 2 lines in a cell for my description column in BOM tables, so it should work for any repeat region table.

Ben, could you post screenshots of process you use to get two different values to show up in the same cell?  I can add the 2nd report parameter into the cell properties, I'm not sure how to set the 2nd value to the use the MM parameter relation.
