Re: default surface finish value

Create a new symbol using your preferred value as a default.

I created a reasonably comprehensive SF symbol I use.

Re: default surface finish value

Tomas,

Could you please explain this in detail? Are you referring the default value 32 for surface finish?

Re: default surface finish value

Yes exactly.

Re: default surface finish value

Mapkeys are your friend. Make one ("sf") that places the symbol (OOTB or custom) and automatically sets the value to whatever you want.

Hi Tom,

 

Thanks for your tip, I think it's the best option.

I just tried to mouse record that mapkey, but it doesn't take the value I had put in in the recording script....it keeps the original 32.00.

Could you post your mapkey script? I have Creo Parametric 3.0 M130.

 

Thanks

Here you go.  This one changes the value to 16.
