    Dimension angle tolerance

    Paul Ronning

      I want the dimension to read 15°±5’. I set my angle dimension to deg,min. I dimension the angle and try to set the tolerance to 5 but I get 15°0’±0’5’. Is there any way to get this to what I want? SWX 2017.

      Thanks

      Paul

          I believe the standard is to never omit the 0°.  And I believe the reason is that the mark is so small that it can easily lead to mis-reading.  You can also not set it to show 0°5" for the same reason.  If there is one number, always degrees.  2 numbers, always degrees and minutes.  3 numbers, always deg-min-sec.

              Thank you for the response. I thought it might be a standard thing but I wanted it to match some other drawings we have. I also found a place to turn off the extra 0's.  Options; Document Properties: Dimensions; Angle; at bottom of dialog box is option to remove units with 0 value for deg/min and deg/min/sec. Checking this box gave me the results I was looking for.

              Thank you all
