Limits and Fits Dimensions in NX11




Could someone help me in enabling the Limits and Fits type dimensioning scheme for INCH templates?


Currently, when i launch a NX session with a MM template, under Drafting Preferences-->Dimension-->Tolerance-->Type and Value, i can set the Type to Limits and Fits (H7 Limits and Fits).


However, when i do the same with an INCH template, Limits and Fits seem to be greyed out. Need this to be enabled.

Any suggestions or solution is appreciated.

In the Help, the following information is provided abuot setting tolerance preferences:

A limits and fits tolerance can only be specified for dimensions in parts with English units of measure when the drafting standard for the part is set to ASME.


To set the drafting standard, do this:

  1. In the Drafting application, choose MenuToolsDrafting Standard.

  2. From the Load From Level list, select a level.

  3. From the Standard list, select a ASME.

  4. Click OK.

NOTE: This will reset a number of other Drafting settings as well. If you want specific settings, consider creating your own Drafting standard based on the ASME version.
