I have Polar selected both in Autodimension scheme and Document Properties (Tools/Options/Document Properties/DimExpert/Geometric Tolerancing). It doesn't work. At all. Has anyone else seen this?

DimXpert is a powerful tool. However, that doesn't mean its perfect. I'd like to hear from you about what you need DimXpert to do that it currently cannot. For example, some customers have asked for the ability to add BASIC dimensions that are not associated with a dimension scheme or that are ancillary to an existing scheme or feature control frame.

Dimxpert reference feature origin As I am working my way through adding 3D annotation (dimxpert) elements on my models, I was trying to figure out how dim origin is represented. In the model state, I see that in the reference feature there is a origin feature and tolerance feature, but what is not helpful is there is no visual way to know which one is what especially when I clicked swap feature.

I am trying to use tolanalyst to do tolerance stack up, but I found it is really painful since the way tolanalyst works isn't the way we want it to do. Wonder anybody understands what is rule for it. There are some tutorials available in Help, SOLIDWORKS Tutorials.

DimXpert should put dimensions according to ISO 2768-2 standard. Instead of that, it always put +-.50 tolerance and it does not matter if you set fin, medium, coarse, or very coarse tolerance. I literally tried everything to force SolidWorks to work properly, but I failed.

auto import dimxpert into drawing I'm working on a project where there will soon be a large amount of parts that will need to be made into drawings. I'd like to at least semi-automate the process if I can't get a handle on putting together a fully automated macro.

it seems everytime i open a part that was already made, feature manager dimxpert tab is always open. i would like to change this and have it go back to the feature manager design tree. thanks you Jive Software Version: 2016.3.10.0, revision: 20180416115013.f4cb191.release_2016.3.10

Broken DimXpert from deleted feature crashes Solidworks I got a part from someone with a whole bunch of DimXpert features with red 'x's by them ('feature has been destroyed and must be deleted'). I was able to delete some of them, but am left with several that crash Solidworks when I click them (left-click, right-click, it doesn't matter).

I too have had the same problem and I'm using 2012 so this feature has been broken for a long time. Thomas Smith wrote:

When a Tol Analysis is exported, it uses a default template that is not quite report friendly. Is there a template file that I can manipulate the way this data is presented? I am not aware of any template that drives how the export into excel looks/behaves.

I tried to change the tolerance for the size dimensions but it reverts back to default value after I clicked "ok". Need help. This appears to be an issue that would be best addressed by your reseller to determine if there is a workflow issue or a bug.

This is the first time I have used dimexpert and Tolanalyst. When I check the box in my drawing to import the dimexpert dimensions it always does 1 of 2 things. Either it imports them but I cannot move them around whatsoever or it brings it in for a second and then they disapear. Any ideas?

TolAnalyst results I have all my dimensions set in my models using DimXpert, complete with tolerances. When I run the tolerance analyst, the excel spreadsheet that I export shows the tolerances as 0.

Is there a way to reorder my Annotation Views? I want to create a particular view that will always appear at the top of the list, but can't find any way to reorder them. , annotation view

DimXpert Fails 1) Annotation views for blind holes are backwards. I go to put a hole call-out for a hole on a cylincrical surface and when the DimXpert annotation view comes up, the orientation is backwards, as in instead of looking towards the center of the part down the drill hole, I end up looking at the opposite side of the part where there is nothing to see.

Historically we have done our tolerance analysis via spreadsheet. The driving dimensions and tolerances are at the beginning, followed by the math and results. That way if a specific dimension or tolerance changes, the results will update for any stack that is affected.

The lines that are locating and sizing something, is there a way to bring them to the front or on top of the model in the view I'm on? Attached picture gives reference to what I'm talking about. Thank you in advanced.

I hear tell that DimXpert doesn't handle injection molded and sheet metal parts very well. Is this true? If it is true, what challenges/limitations exist? Are there work around for it?

I am trying to find maximum and minium gap after applying suitable tolerance between piston and cylinder type of two mating part. Can anybody guide me how to calculate it in tolanalyst, as i have tried to find out but its work instruction is not clearly showing how it is calculating as i want to cross check it with my manual calculation. Yes i have same qestion.

I tried using TolAnalyst to calculate RSS stackup on Gear Box Assembly given at Help Tutorials. Do you know how Min and Max values are calculated both WC and RSS at backgraund?

Is there any way to use the "as modeled" dimensions and tolerances (the ones defined in the feature sketches) for tolanalyst? Dimxpert doesn't seem to want to allow me to define the tolerances the way I want (for example, I want to define the diamter of either end of a conical hole... but dimxpert just wants to dimension the angle of the cone, not the diameter of the two circular ends. Can I just use the dimensions that the model was created with?
