Notised that some dims were not right in my drawing ... (sheet metal part)
After investicating found out that dims were assigned as True instead of Projected.
Is there a possibility to set Projected as default for new views? And if yes then how?
I never really noticed that setting before, but did some looking. Mine show as Projected on all views except Isometric, which switches to True. Is this an Isometric View?
I flattened the part, turned it perpendicular to the surface, rotated it to a good direction, saved the view and then made a new view to a drawing and selected my saved view. That might be an explanation for "True Type". But I would like it to be "Projected" by default.
If the view is at any kind of angle I'd think you'd want True. I'm pretty sure Projected will give you the dimension in a straight line normal to the screen and not necessarily the dimension of the edge.
I can't replicate your problem.
Can you attach the file.
Here is my part and drawing. If you add a new view, select flatted configuration and turn it to the saved view "Flattened", it will pop to True Dim Type.
In the part file and after you flatten the part select a face you want to show as the front view and then hit the space bar and change the view
The reason your dimensions are coming in as true is because the view is slightly on an angle and can't project correctly..
Good point, but it will not set the Dim Type -tab to the desired value (Projected). Instead other standard views (except Top and Bottom) will get "True" -tab activated.
Found solution that was a little bit different than my original question ....
1. Select "(A) Flat pattern" -view from the list and
2. Adjust view direction as you want with tools below
Now "Projected" -tab is selected by default. It is made too easy for me ... heh
