Detail view notation format

All


Does anybody know what settings (dtl/config/format file) controls the format used for detail view notations in a drawing?


I have attached two images one from a user's PC with the notation we use and one from a user's PC where the notation is very different.

Neal Hanratty,



That is a drawing option and not a modeling option. I remember playing
around with this before and I ended up saving a dtl file for this
configuration.



Take a look at the image that I have included here:

Neal,
It's detail_circle_note_text and the value should be DEFAULT...seems like an odd value but that gives you the 'SEE DETAIL'

You can make it anything you want...in this case, I set it do say 'NEAL'

yes, that's a drawing .dtl setting. the name's 'view_scale_format'. defaults to 'decimal' but you can change it to a couple types of outputs.

Sorry, I don't know of an option to adjust the name under the detail view. Seems like a very reasonable request especially since we can control the name on the leader note.

Does anyone know how to turn off the "scale" note, but leave the " detail name" part of the note.
We do not want to show any scales on our drawings.
I already have a format note that says do not scale drawing
but I would like to erase the "scale 2:1" part of the note.

Not sure about any other release but in Creo parametric 2.0, You can change the view name of the detail view in the drawing tree
Right Click > Rename…. the system still puts the word DETAIL in front of the name though… PTC “almost got another one” ☺

Have a good day &_STUFF

Haha, we’ve had this discussion here at work and on this forum before. I don’t believe there is an option to turn off the scale. To be complete, showing scale on the drawing is an ASME requirement even if you have a note on your drawing that says “do not scale drawing” which is on every drawing I have ever produced at every company I have worked at.

Having the scale on the drawing does not really facilitate scaling a drawing. It’s more about having the size ratio on the print so you know that the bolt hole in one view isn’t physically 3 times larger than the bolt hole in another view.

All of this is my opinion (except the ASME part) and I think if a company wants to not have it on their drawings, that is okay as long as they are consistent.
