I am using AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 (Student Edition) and need to override my base dimension style settings to include tolerances on drawings.
The program seems to disregard anything I do with regard to overriding the dimension style settings. The specific tolerane desired in this example is (Upper: +0.021; Lower: 0) but I need both numbers to display to three decimals.
Here's how things look at my end:
(Note: Skipping from 5 to 14 gives the same response.)
Here is what the command prompt returns for the Update Dimension command:
The formatting options in the Power Dimensioning tab don't allow me to show redundant zeroes (e.g. 25.000) so I cannot use that method regardless of the DIMTZIN value. The rest I have already described. Can anyone help me with this?
Can you uncheck " Trailing" option in DDIM>>Select the base dimenesion style>>Modify>>Primary units tab>>Zero Suppression>>Uncheck " Trailing" and verify the issue.
Repeat the above step for Tolerance tab too.
Try creating a new powerdim and enable the tolerance button.
I've been able to fix this issue by going to AMOPTIONS>Standards>Dimension Settings and setting my custom dimension style as the "Base dimension style" while leaving "Force power dimensions to use this dimension style" selected. I can now obtain a dimension that looks like:
Previously I was unable to force trailing zeroes to show, regardless of options being de-selected in the DDIM window tabs.
