Printing relation symbols

Hi all,
I am brawing components where parallelism and orthogonality are 2
important parameters. The relations appear on screen but are not
printed. Is tehre any option I did not see to print relation symbols ?
Thanks for your help

Re: Printing relation symbols

Typically, you don't want to print those out because to my knowledge they mean nothing in relation to drafting/drawing standards...those are for visual reference to the designer/drafter in both 2D and even when creating a 3D model in some instances, depending on the software.

Use dimensions and GD&T on your drawings instead, assuming that perpendicularity will suffice in place of orthogonality. I would never display a constraint (parameter in your words) on a printed drawing to show an important design aspect.

GD&T will be found under the Feature Control Frame command on the Home tab set of icons. Click on the Properties icon to get to the GD&T goodies.

Hi Tim,
I just forgot how I should have stated those constraints. Thanks for the
reminder Smiley Wink
