Chamfer Dimension issue

Genius

Hello

 

Please refer the attached Nx 9 model (Actual Version Nx 11).

 

In the attached file majenta chamfer is Symmetric 1 mm i.e., 1 mm x 45°.

 

But while dimensioning in detailing it shows 1.31 vertical and 0.78 horizontal. This need to be dimensioning as 1 mm without manually editing the dimensions.

 

Any suggestions invited.

 

Thanks in advance

@Sekars , you can set the decimal places to 0 for those dimensions, then they will be rounded up and rounded down to 1mm.

Sorry, I cannot use this because i need to set decimal places for 2 digits per standard.

Change the setting in the chamfer command into 'Offset faces and trim'

Thank you...

Note: You may have to select "Reverse Direction" for these values to work, but it should give you 1.00 mm for both vertical and horizontal dimensions.

If you are trying to use a note format chamfer dimension, per Y14.5 it may only be used to specify 45° chamfers where the linear value applies in either direction (which only applies for two surfaces 90° apart). A chamfer to a curved surface does not qualify as the leg length is ambiguous along the curve, as is the angle. This type of chamfer requires a leg dimension and an angle dimension, not a chamfer note.

Just because NX allows you to do something doesn't mean it's always legit.

Please elloborate 'Offset faces and trim'.

 

I need to use the dimensions only and it should show the values (1 mm and 45°) inputted while using chamfer command.

 

thanks
