Dimensioning a feature in multiview or single view

Dimensioning a feature in multiview or single view


In a part that i have designed there are 4 chamfers. In a third angle drawing, i can only see 2 of the chamfers in the top view and the other two in the front view.
Can i use a repeated dimension ( 4X 10 X 45 Degree symbol) in one of the view? Or should i dimension the chamfer in each view?

thank you in advance for your help.

RE: Dimensioning a feature in multiview or single view

So long as it is clear then you'll get away with the 4X call out on one view even though you can only see 2 in that view and the other 2 in anotehr view.

If it's a complex or otherwise potentially confusing drawing that's when you'll want to be more explicit.

RE: Dimensioning a feature in multiview or single view

The confusion and lost productive time caused by the lack of detail is more costly than adding the detail to the drawing.
