Tabulated part?

GTOL verses SHOWN/CREATED dimensions!!!

I have some parts that I want to tabulate on the same drawing. Usually I just create the dimensions and change them to read "A", "B" etc.
This works.

Since we are doing more and more GTOL dimensioning, The method above does not work since you can't modify a SHOWN dimension using the "O" in place of the "D".
If I use CREATED dimensions, GTOL doesn't work with them as far as I know.

Any and all suggestions, ideas or whatever will be appreciated.

Thanks

Tabulated part?

On shown dims, while you cannot use the 'O' method to clear the dim
value, you can display the dimension symbol by using an 'S" in place of
the 'D'.  Changing the dimension name in the dimension properties to A
will give you the same results.

Tabulated part?

Two part to this answer.
If you want to have a shown dimension appear as A or B, you can change the
dimension name from d123 or whatever to A or B and then instead of @o or
@d, you can use @s which shows the dimension symbol. In this case the A or
B.

A word of caution - This also creates a parameter called A or B. No harm
done and they can be useful in equations, but you should be aware that it
is happening.


Answer 2 - you can indeed attach GTOL to created dimensions. Our .dtl and
config.pro files are set up so that it works, but I cannot seem to find
the settings.

Can anyone help us here?

GTOL verses SHOWN/CREATED dimensions!!!

I have some parts that I want to tabulate on the same drawing. Usually I
just create the dimensions and change them to read ?A?, ?B? etc.
This works.

Since we are doing more and more GTOL dimensioning, The method above does
not work since you can?t modify a SHOWN dimension using the ?O? in place
of the ?D?.
If I use CREATED dimensions, GTOL doesn?t work with them as far as I know.

Any and all suggestions, ideas or whatever will be appreciated.
