Rounding off dimension problem

292 Views, 3 Replies

I'm having a problem with ASD and the roundoff command for dimensions. I have the dimstyle set to round off to the nearest 5 (mm). When i snap the dimension lines, it shows the figure as rounded off, but when I insert the same dimension line, it reverts back to the figured value (without rounding).

Can anyone help?

Hi

When you SNAP the dimension lines I take it you are placing the dim line between two points?

What do you mean by inserting the dim line, please explain.

ASD overiddes each dim text "by hand" after placing the dimesion. i think you can't set rounding
