Dimensioning method of shapes, holes and recesses

Dimensioning method of shapes, holes and recesses

The logic and functionality of shape dimensions, holesmall hollow open throughout a part or assembly that is usually used for fastening parts with bolts or other such objects

Hole is created in the same way as bolts and hole properties are defined in the bolt properties.

dimensions and recess dimensions in view-level dimensioning is clear and predictable. The definition, which geometry is shape, hole or recess is done only once for the object to be dimensioned, and that definition is used in all drawing views.

The definition of shape and hole is done by looking at the shadow of an object in three directions X, Y and Z in the following way:

  • Points along the outer edge of the shadow are dimensioned as a shape.

  • Inner loops in the shadow will be dimensioned as holes.

  • All other geometry points that are not visible in the shadow, will be dimensioned as recesses.

In the image below there are some examples of each geometry type:

  1. Holes
  2. Recesses
  3. Shapes

A model object is either created in a model or imported into it.
