    How to elminate extra space in GD&T

    Alan Thomason

      Hello there...

       

      Is there a way to eliminate the space between the diameter symbol and the tolerance?

       

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Do not use the diameter symbol from the palette, instead, type in Alt 0216, Ø or Alt 0248 ø (US Extended ASCII Characters)

          ...then type in required tolerance.

          Once again, SolidWorks in their infinite wisdom is creating GD&T like words in a sentence. If only they would refer to the actual ASME specification for guidance.
