DriveWorks Pro 16: Drive Dimension Tolerance Limits [send feedback...]

Drive Dimension Tolerance Limits

This Generation Task is used to drive a dimension tolerance's upper and lower limits in a Part or Assembly.

This Task will not function correctly if there isn't an existing dimension tolerance already on the Model. This Task simply sets the limits.

Properties

Property NameDescription
(Name)The unique name for this task.
Dimension NameThe name of the dimension that will be driven. Use a pipebar (|) delimited list of names to drive multiple dimensions.
Dimension Lower LimitThe New Lower Limit value for the dimension being driven. This value is in model units.
Dimension Upper LimitThe New Upper Limit value for the dimension being driven. This value is in model units.

Examples

When this task is added the properties are both static by default. See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.

Bilateral Tolerance

Property NameExample RuleExample ResultMeaning
Dimension Name"D1@Plane1"D1@Plane1This is the name of the dimension on which to set the dimension tolerance limits.
Dimension Lower Limit-0.25-0.25This will set the lower limit to -0.25mm if the model units are set to mm.
Dimension Upper Limit0.50.5This will set the upper limit to 0.5mm if the model units are set to mm.

Symmetric Tolerance

Property NameExample RuleExample ResultMeaning
Dimension Name"D1@Sketch3"D1@Sketch31This is the name of the dimension on which to set the dimension tolerance limits.
Dimension Lower LimitThis property is not needed for a Symmetric tolerance.
Dimension Upper Limit0.50±0.50This will set the upper limit to 0.5mm if the model units are set to mm.

Other tolerance types can also be used with this task.
