My company is trying to Standardize all drawings produced to 1 format. the one we are attempting to create would be in the form of: nominal upper limit^lower limit. this is easily acheived in autocad and linear, chamfer, and hole/thread dimensions in inventor. but radii's and diameters from a round surface (as apposed to linear diameters) we have run into a snag with. We cannot seem to find a way to either remove the prefix symbols or be able to insert text between the symbol and tolerance.
below is a illistration of the problem and the form of the new dimensions.
if anyone knows where i can find these controles, the information would be much appreciated.
My company is trying to Standardize ....
What standard are you using? (Example - ASME/ANSI Y14.41).
we aren't really using a set ANSI standard right now. every engineer has his own method right now.
Perhaps the easiest way to introduce and enforce a common standard is to agree to use a National Standard.
I have been trying for the last 3 years but this is what the management feel is our better option. so back to the original question: Is there a way to remove the diameter and radius symbol from appearing on their own?
