Thanks in advance. I have a situation where I'm re-drawing a drawing that is in German. I now this might not be the correct area to get this info, so please forgive me. I'm using ACAD 2009 that is why I'm here.
My first questions relates to Origin. I have attached a drawing I'm re-drawing and it appears that the Origin is shown on the Top View of the drawing, which is fine. But the Bottom View also shows the origin using the Top also. Would a machinist know what to do when creating this part? Or should I show the Origin using another locatons, for ex: another hole on the botton view?
My second questions is in reference to Notes that are on the drawing. I tried to translate them, but since it's dealing with drafting the meanings don't seem to come out clear. If anyone can tell me what it says that will be grateful.
If by chance I'm in the wrong location on my post please do let me know.
There should be (and is) only one origin. The origin is the origin is the origin.
Thank you for your reply. I thought this was true, so I just wanted to make sure. I also have another question. The drawing I'm re-drawing shows a tolerance setting of one value. For example:
A typical dim would be 10mm (+.000, -.05) mm. Is there a way to show only the -.05 tolerance value? I currenlty using the Deviation function, but this show both values, upper and lower limits.
Is there a way to show only the -.05 tolerance value?
I don't think that would be correct. You should show both the +.00 and the -.05 for the dimension to be complete.
What Standard are you using? (for example, I use ANSI/ASME Y14.41)
in either iso or ansi standards i believe JD is right . to show only minus tolerance wouldnt be correct.
it allows your 10 dimension to becomes 11 or more.
if this is really what you need then you shouldnt be using a tolerance but rather dimension : "9.95 MIN " .
also i am not sure i understand your origin issue . if you mean the origin of your Geometric tolerance ( A) then its enough to indicate it on one view .
