Champer Dimension Tolerance

Champer Dimension Tolerance

Champer Dimension Tolerance


I wanted to add tolerance for both dimension of the champer.
But I couldn't add tolerance for the second dimension.
So, I created a text and ready to place it at the arrow location:

This detailed is shown very accurate in the Catia Drawing file I attached to this thread.
My question is: Is it possible to add tolerances for both champer dimension (maybe in Properties), other than substituting with text?

Thank you!

RE: Champer Dimension Tolerance

I'm not quite sure about the format of what you are showing there or what you are trying to do. Never seen a chamfer called out like that. In any case, what you are looking for is RMB > Properties > Tolerance. There are a bunch of options there. There is also a drop down menu in the toolbars that can do the same things.

Don't forget that you don't need to use the chamfer dimension. You could provide more control over what you are doing by using two separate linear dimensions.

Thanks for your message.
I work under engineering supervision.
The engineer gave me a marked-up project and asked to include tolerances for the chamfer.
