how to import ordinate dimensions

Question asked by Mike Childers on Oct 6, 2017

Is there a way to import ordinate dimensions?  I need to dimension a model.  I want to use ordinate dimensions, but I want to import them so that the tolerances will stay linked.  If I manually ordinate dimension model in drawing and add tolerances, if I change tolerances in model it does not change tolerances in drawing.  Also, with regular dimensions, if I don't import them, the tolerances are not linked (I don't understand why you would ever want them to NOT be linked).

 

So, is there a way to import ordinate dimensions with tolerances, or is there a way to convert imported regular dimensions into ordinate.  Any way that I will end up with tolerance linked, ordinate dimensions.  I'm running 2014 by the way.

 

Thanks.
