2D red dimension meaning...

2D red dimension meaning...


What is the meaning of red dimension in a 2D sheet?

It is not pink(like in the picture below), but pure red:

RE: 2D red dimension meaning...

Did you Update the assembly and update the drawing, and did that change the dimension color?

RE: 2D red dimension meaning...


Thanks for your prompt reply.
No, if updating the assembly and the drawing, the dimension keep the red color.
I Re-routed the red dimensions and now everything is fine.
I got this assignment from a previous user.
I do not know what he did wrong in creating those dimensions and that's why I created this thread: I am eager to know why the red dimension came in the first place!!!!

RE: 2D red dimension meaning...


I suppose the user replaced the initial 3D model with another one (and most probably not same UUID)...you have to reroute the dimensions manually...this is happening mainly when you replace the initial 3D with another one with a script...

Maybe initial 3D was a 3D step file replaced later on with a native CATIA file...you can imagine different scenarios..

I see same color (pink) in both pictures :)

RE: 2D red dimension meaning...


You right, but actually they are red.
It looks like the picture is not very accurate.
Thanks for detail. 2thumbsup
