I'm not sure what you mean by "expression dimension", is this a sketch dimension? If so, right click the sketch dimension and choose "display as PMI"; you can then inherit the PMI dimensions to your drawing. No need to re-create them.

Is this a feature expression, or manually created expression used in modeling that you want to access in drafting?

 

Based on your explanation it sounds like you just want to display the value of an expression on the drawing sheet?   If that's the case, do you want to show it as a dimension, a note, in a table or some other way?  All of these can be done.  If you can provide a little more information (screenshots?) we can try to help.

hello experts,

 

i fully agreed that i can use convert as PMI of sketch dimension, that will show in drafting view as dimension

 

but what about feature dimension bro!!!!!!!!!

 

i cant insert feature dimension like extrude ,revolve , groove etc dimension in drafting view

eg. i extrude circle & substract with some limits, circle dimension will inherit if i draw circle in sketch,i will do convert as PMI & i can show it

but guys what about extrude feature ,i used that,but i cant inherit direct dimension of extrude feature

 

Like i used sketch parameters cmd as screenshot , i can inherit my sketch dimension, hole dimension,

 

but where is extrude revolve, move face feature !!!!!!!!!

 

in sort my problem is i wanna inherit / access direct dimension of features like extrude

 

see the screenshot for more details

If it were possible to show these "expression dimensions" on a drawing (it may be, I'm not sure), you will quickly run into problems. Let's say that you draw a circle and extrude it into a cylinder then use move face on one of the circular ends: which expression dimension would you show on the drawing? The extrusion length or the move face length? Neither represent the actual length of the cylinder...

Hello@ cowski1

i think the last used feature should be show, either you have to suppress that,
than previous feature should show,
either you have to choose manually which feature you wanna give dimension
software is just tool bro , it will do that what we require,

but if i give dimension in feature than why cant software take that dimension, why should i give one more dimension in dimension , why i cant take dimension from direct feature like legacy sketch parameters or from expression
is i am true or wrong
