2D - Geometrical Tolerance 3

2D - Geometrical Tolerance

(OP)
Hi,

Is it possible to create the feature (Geometrical Tolerance) shown in the picture below of one (without adding another Geometrical Tolerance)?

I have created it using 4 different elements:
1) - Text
2) - Text
3) - Geometrical Tolerance
4) - Geometrical Tolerance

Thanks

For Top Line of text and GDT:

For Bottom Lines down arrow for GDT and shift + enter for 2nd line of text:

RychiT,
I am not sure how to follow your directions, Alt+Enter open the Properties tab............

RE: 2D - Geometrical Tolerance

SHIFT+ENTER when in text box create an hidden /n character to go to next line

Great, thanks a lot Itsmyjob!

RE: 2D - Geometrical Tolerance

I went back and corrected my post.
Shift+Enter will bring you to the next line the text editor as well.
I had Alt+enter on my mind for some reason!

No worries, RickyT.

There is another question related to this thread.
Please, have a look at the picture below:

How should we add the +1/-0 value(red circled) in the same way that is shown in the picture (overlaid)? We know that this value should have smaller size.

Thanks!

RE: 2D - Geometrical Tolerance

ok I am not sure going with Annotation texts is the best solution as the definition of sub text properties in annotation text is hard to get.

if you want associative dimensions I would suggest you create:

the M8 dimension

edit the dimension and add a <space> to the lower text:

then the 2xø9 text

locate the text over the <space> created in step 1
link position of text to dim1

edit text and select "ø9" in the drawing not the GUI, go RightClick : insert attribut link, select the 3D feature to get the real "ø9" so text value is linked with 3D feature.

Then add tolerance as text <space>0-1
select <space>0 , in text property select Superscript
select -1 , in text property select Subscript

you need to have <space> and "0" as superscript if you want the digits (0 and 1) to align

Finally double Annotation to dim 1

it will be place automatically below the text as catia knows there is a sub text (the <space> added in step 1)

Hope this help

Itsmyjob,

Thanks a lot!

RE: 2D - Geometrical Tolerance

I would keep them separate. Dimension the hole first so that it updates to the 3D model of the hole and then add the GD&T box onto that dimension. This provides the most update-ability of the drawing to the 3D CAD.
