ive never seen this one before and havent been able to find anything about it, all my dimension seem to be in 3d air while im editing a 2d feature, i am also not able to double click on the dimensions to edit.
If you turn this feature off, does it still do it?
i just tried, that doesnt help. just made the text small, i have the insta 3-d off too.
How does your display options look
to make it weirder it is only this one part in my assembly.
Is that one part created using the same Part Template??
yes same prt template while making / modifying the part it was fine, today i noticed it was werid
Do you save out your drafting standards at all??
not sure what you mean, so probably not.
Basically what you want to do is save out a good setting and then you can load it later when you run into issues... I'm not sure if that would assist you with your issue or not..
on separate part the drafting standard is the same without an issue so i dont think thats it.
I highly doubt it either, however there comes a time where you keep grasping for straws in hopes you draw the short one - if it's just the one part it could be corrupt - but it could be a rebuild issue as well, I've seen crazy stuff happen with circular rebuilds..
If all your settings come out ok, now my question is how was this part modeled, Top Down or Bottom Up? Are there any external references or sketch relations to another component in the main assembly???
Graphics card issue? (See #13 at Frequently Asked Forum Questions.)
The only thing with the graphic card - why is it just one part, graphic card issues tend to be across the board...
it must be corrupt, i recently had a model that i couldnt open this week also and had to restore previous version, could my computer be corrupting these files?
Just check if there is a chance that a Circular Rebuild could be taking control - simple rule of thumb with SW push information down the feature tree - don't pull up any information below the part, is it sketches or other components etc..
i just had a co worker replace that part with a good one, that the dimension were fine. and after i open it the dimension were blown up again.
At least you know it's your machine and not the file.
I'm not sure if this applies but I had a single part model today where I could NOT turn off the feature dimensions without turning off ALL annotations. No matter what combination of settings that I chose, the dimensions would not disappear. Turning off all annotations resulted in a loss of all cosmetic threads which I didn't want to happen.
The solution? I rebooted my computer.
I wasted a good half hour researching the problem and trying different solutions when all my computer needed was a good flushing.
Like I said, not sure if this applies but I thought I'd share.
