  • Decifering the meaning of the colors represented within the reports

    I am wondering if there are any tutorials or documents explaining the meaning of each color in the reports as well as why sometimes they go one direction or the other. I also am wondering if I can change the 0 of the bars displayed to follow more closely(fit types ) to my specific blueprint rather then just tasking the average .

    Edit> Graphics Display Window> Edit Dimension Colors will allow you to change the dimension color. I have mine set green for good, then yellow, then orange, and red if it's out of tolerance. The little graph displays a visual of what the dimension is at. The graph on the report represents where the measured value is according the dimension's +TOL and -TOL values i.e. if your dimension is 1.000 ±.005" and your measured value is 1.0025, the graph will be colored halfway thru the +side of the tolerance. If it measures .9975, it will be colored halfway thru the - side of the tolerance.

      I made a tutorial on Dimension Colours a few years ago. You can watch it here:
