  • metric / inch bug

    Has anyone had this same bug?

    I programmed and measured in metric units.

    I had a diameter that is in inches, so I allied tolerance to it and clicked on the inch box.

    The results are mixed...the nominal is metric and the measured is in inches.

    not a friendly combination

    plus all the numbers are only 3 place decimals, I needed 4 places...

      If you are in metric, it defaults to 3 decimal places for all dimensions. Using F5 setup / DIMENSION you can change the number of decimal places.

      As for the other, have you tried running it since you toggled from MM to INCH? Maybe it needs to be 'refreshed', or possibly save, close, open to have it show right.

        Decimal places... Hit "F5" pick the number of Decimal places you need

          figured this one out...

          when putting a value in the ISO Limits and Fits....it creates a mixed result.
          if I leave it blank, the results are in inches only, then have to edit the numbers in the edit window

          thanks for the F5 tip...that helps me

            type on a new line in the edit window DISPLAYPRECISION 4, that will give you 4 decimal places or do it the way Matt said!

              Man, that ISO limits and fits really screws things up. I was told to stay away from it. I guess I don't really know what it is for. Can anyone elaborate?
