Sketching with fractional dimensions input (Imperial system)

Hi everyone,

I'd like to know how to input lengths in fractional system. I want to create a simple rectangle of [ 27' 11_3/4'' by 11' 6_1/2'' ] how do I do this without converting dimensions to decimal, or the part that is in inches to a single fraction??

I have attached a plant layout of equipment, I'm trying to sketch.

Thanks in advance!

I think that you would be able to enter the dimensions as so, if your overall dimensions are in inches. I'm not familiar with how Creo handles the display of units in feet and inches.

 

27′ 11 3/4″ 

27*12+11+3/4

  

11′ 6 1/2″

11*12+6+1/2

 

You may also want to set the following config.pro options:  

create_fraction_dim yes
dim_fraction_format std

 and the following model (and drawing) detail option:

use_major_units yes

Re: Sketching with fractional dimensions input (Imperial system)

There are some config options and some drawing options you'll need to set.

 

Config options
dim_fraction_denominator 64
create_fraction_dim yes

Drawing setup options


default_tolerance_mode NOMINAL
dim_fraction_format AISC
use_major_units YES
