Datum Identifier w/ Plunger Anchor attachemnt

547 Views, 7 Replies

I am being requested that I add a plunger/ anchor to the datum identifier within/ on a GD&T feature control frame (see attached). This is per ASME Y14.5M - 1994 and Autodesk IV states that it meets this spec.  I also checked with a couple of 'reliable sources' and they also stated that it needs to be there. I was hoping that it was a personnel preference/ company standard type thing.

 

Anyone know how to change the setting to add it within the control frame generator?

 

Thank you.

Bump.

 

So this is the default layout of the feature box and can't change it?

 

Thanks.

If I understand your question correctly, what you want is default.

So maybe I don't understand.

I think you may have misenterpreted the standard.

The picture that shows a datum identifier attached to the feature control frame is just showing you the different elements of the system.

The datum identifier actually attaches to the feature you are referncing your geometric tolerance against, not the feature control frame.

If you want a different plunger type, highlight the "Datum Identifier" then pick the green dot at the apex of the triangle, you will then get a pulldown of the various options.

P.S.

this standard was superceeded in 2009

The reference I am showing is a positional tolerance for a hole and also identifies the hole pattern as datum 'C'. I am being asked to show the anchor attachment ( AKA plunger, triangle) for the datum identifier to the feature control frame. I know I can also attach it to the feature. Is it small potatoes? Yes, but you know how it goes with checkers & standards.

 

Thanks.

ditto

 your original screen shot seems to show what it appears you are asking for...it looks like it was done in inventor...i also have no problems showing it like that in Inventor, your actual question seems to be ambigous

 

or maybe sketch it in autocad and show what you want v what you get.

I created the datum identifier (A)

I created a normal leader to the box

go to properties for the leader, under Lines & Arrows, select arrow type: datum triangle filled.
