This module covers additional Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) tools used to define a model in 3D. Apply reference dimensions and reuse feature dimensions. Apply and customize datum targets. Add default notes from the Design Library and add 3D notes. Create and save a tolerance style to be reused. Add surface finishes and weldment symbols.
Learn DimXpert in Assembly to define dimensions and tolerances for overall sizes and installation interfaces in assembly environment. All the existing DimXpert capabilities in part are supported in assembly. Use Auto Dimension Scheme define the installation hole spacing. Use Location and Size dimension tools to define hole sizes and assembly feature dimensions and tolerances. Apply manual basic dimensions. Select edges instead of faces for easier definition. Place dimensions per mouse move just like in 2D drawings or sketches. Update flag notes automatically. Display coordinate systems per feature control frames.
