I wounder if there is a way to see which dimensions that have been changed when you update a drawing? (after changing the model)
Solved! Go to Solution.
This kind of feature don't exist with inventor The only mid range software i've seen this is Solid Edge.
Maybe you can post a new idea in the ideaStation
funny question IMO..
You just changed the model.. You should know which dimensions changed.
There are many reasons why this is a good question. Maybe it's just because I spent forever using solid edge, but I also would like to see a way to track dimension changes within a drawing.
First: dimensions may potentially change without you realizing it. Tracking dim changes draws your attention to any dimensions which changed. We all know how we WANT part modifications to affect the models and dims, but sometimes it changes dims in ways we may have not anticipated.
Second: It gives a simple, effective way to label the changed dimension with a revision level balloon, and all at once, all linked to the same rev level.
Third: In instances where the dimensions detach from geometry, it gives you an easy reminder about what those dim measurements were so you can be sure and reattach the same dimensions.
Also, how about in an assembly, you change one part, but the location of a surface that is on another part needs to stay in the same place, however you forgot this means you must modify the second part as well in order to ensure the location of that surface is still located where you need it to be.
Or with holes locations when inside different parts in an assembly. Modifications to one part may result in hole spacing changes.
I really can keep thinking up so many scenarios where tracking of dimension changes within drawings is very helpful. Almost common sense, even.
