Hello dear colauges.greetings from bulgaria.today i had a very unusual question by my supervisor about a very spesific function that was used for many years in our company.it's the custom symbol for line break GAP25 and GAP125.unfortunately we have moved to NX10.and here the drafting settings for dimension line break a quite different.how ever my question is.Is there a way to break a dimention line when it intersekt with a dimention annotation from a nother dimention.i have a picture as a attachment.

dimentions are marked the orange dimention needs two brakes that are indicated.the yelow dimension annotation text overlaps the orange dimention line.

 

how can this spesific case be resolved.

In the ISO standards, it is actually against the rules to break extension or dimension lines for any reason.  ASME standard allows it one one scenario only.

in the settings of an annotation you can create a Breaks

Right click on the dimension that needs to have the break->Line/arrow->Break->format

Here you can set the Break on or off and the break size.

Breaks get create if extension lines/leaders overlap with each other. It does not create a break if the leader and displayed dimension value overlaps as shown by @Aleitin.

Space out the dimensions so that they do not overlap. Breaking this dimension as shown will only cause confusion.

Hi @Aleitin!

In NX 10, still you can use GAP25 and GAP125 symbols.

Search for the command 'User Defined Symbol' in drafting application.
