Single Part view in assembly drawing

Use to combine dimensions in single-part views included in assembly drawings. The options correspond to the combining order on the General tab of the Dimensioning Properties dialog box. By default, this advanced option is not set to any value.

  • Option 0 prevents dimensions from being combined.

  • Option 1 combines part positionposition number that is assigned to a part

    dimensions with part internal dimensions, and bolt groupgroup of bolts that forms a connecting building object between an assembly main part and secondary parts

    The number of bolts in a bolt group depends on the bolt group shape and the values of bolt distances.

    internal dimensions with bolt edge distances. Bolt position dimensions are not combined with bolt internal dimensions.

  • Option 2 combines the part position dimension with part internal dimensions and bolt group internal dimensions. Bolt internal dimensions are combined with bolt position dimensions. Edge distances are shown separately.

  • Option 3 combines bolt internal dimensions and position dimensions in the same dimension lineline that visualizes the distance between the defined dimension points

    Separate dimensions can be combined into a longer dimension line.


  • Option 4 combines bolt group position dimensions with part position dimensions. Part and bolt internal dimensions are not combined with this option, but bolt internal dimensions are combined with bolt edge distances.

  • Option 5 combines internal dimensions and the position dimension of bolt groups where there are several bolt groups.

  • Option 4.5 uses a combination of option 5 for the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    and a combination of option 4 for the secondary parts.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
