Foreshortened Linear Dimension Symbol

Is there any way to create the following foreshortened zigzag symbol for linear dimensions?

Hi @David_McMahon

 

 

 

I do not knwo about any method to get something like that.

And I also don't know any drawing standard defining it as shown.

 

But as we only use DIN DIN ISO in mm, maybe this could be different for ANSI/ASME

I see no mention of a foreshortened linear dimension in the ANSI/ASME standards either.  The only foreshortened dimension type I can find in the standard is related to foreshortened radius dimensions.

Hi,

 

I know only one way to use zig-zag. Solid Edge provides "zig-zag" sign when you use a not to scale dimension. But you have to pay attention for getting correct dimension after part editing...

 

Here is a video:
