Drawings:  Dimensioning a Chamfer

Okay, this will be simple for someone, but I need the help. I've got a model with several chamfers. I'm doing the print now, and I had Pro/E put in the dimensions for me. For one chamfer, it did the regular chamfer dimension (0.053 and 45 degrees). The other chamfers all have dimensions for the angle and a seperate dimension for the length of the offset. How do I dimension a chamfer manually to have it put in the x" and 45 degrees as one entry?

    Hi david, You can create a note and use the feature id of your chamfer dimension and the angle dimension.

      hi david, If there is single chamfer then no problems for dimensioning.And if there is more chamfers having same dimension then u can make a note and mension in that "all unspecified chamfers having A x °. And if dimensions are differnt for all chamfers then make a note having arrowhead for each chamfer,select suface of chamfer for location of arrowhead.U also check the important of chamfer.If it is only for removing sharp edges then no problem.But if it having important like mating somewhere then give proper dimension.

          Hi David, As i've said, you can create a note and use the dimension id of chamfer's lenght ang angle. 1. In your model show the chamfer's dimension 2. go to Info>Switch Dimensions in order to get the dimension id 3. for example the lenght is d1 and the angle is d2 4. In your drawing, create a note and enter &d1 X &d2 to show the lenght and angle dimensions

                  I'm not sure if this what you mean. 2-5x45°. 2- - no. of chamfer(manually) 5 - length of chamfer (dimension or @d) x45° - desired(manually) you can do that by adding it manually before and after the specified dimension-(Properties)

                    Hi David When applyling chamfer to an edge proe gives 4 options. i.e. D x D D1 x D2 Angle x D 45° x D Since you want 45° x D to appear in the drawing then use the last option 45° x D. If you want enter manually then double click on the dim and in dim properties menu box, go to dimension Text tab and click it. In dimension Text window enter 45° X before @D Denzil I think this solve your problem
