How to change the dimensioning system in CATIA?
Please tell me how to change the dimensioning system on CATIA
from along the direction system(medium.jpg) to unidirectional system(connecting rod.jpg)
You cannot just change the direction of orientation of dimension. It belongs to the Standard. You need to follow everything of a Standard selected. Go to:
File -> Page Setup, and change Standard from "ISO" to "ASME". That will solve your problem :)
I am not able to understand Ur Question completely. But still I think this might be the solution. Am not sure.
Select the Dimension -> Right Click ->Dimension.Object -> Dimension Representation here U will see few option. Try vertical,Horizontal or Aligned.
If it's not what U were looking for, then Please elaborate ur Question.
thanks for the answer but the question is different,
It is not about the dimension representation
It's about the dimension system
as you see in the images i have added below
In picture 1, the dimensions are aligned to the direction of dimension (Aligned Dimension system)
In picture 2, the dimensions are on a same direction of dimension
(Unidirectional Dimension system)
how to get the dimensions like on the picture 2 whereas i getting the dimensions as in Picture 1 (by default)
I have attached two images which will explain what u wanted.
Select the Dimension -> Right Click -> Properties -> Value Tab -> Set Orientation To Perpendicular as shown in image.
But i don't know how to break the Dim line to set the value in middle. I will try to know the answer and will inform U.
