Yes, via your templates. You have to have access to them and be able to save them for your future work.
I am sorry if I am a little out of date. Last time I worry about the format of a template was with SolidEdge V12 (maybe even before that).
However, now the environment “settings” vary depending on where you are in solid. This means that to change the dimension format you have to:
But the “Set as default” button doesn’t exist anymore. So, if I put another dimension (in the same sketch) it is not coming with the desired format (NOT dual dimension display).
Could any of you tell me in a little more detail how to do this? hawcad, where I can find the route to the functionality “Format Styles Organisation”?
Do you know any links on internet that could help me?
Open your part template file and follow the video which shows how to change your dimension style(s).
Do the same for any other templates if needed - asm, dft, psm. All of them have the styles button on the home tab.
sorry for that late response, I really have forgotten to answer when coming back to the PC.
You will find the Style Organizer diectly in the Style form.
From here You can copy any fomrat style to any file.
My overall suggestion here always is to copy it to the material.mtl since this will be the global and general store for any settings You have.
And from there You can copy it to everey file You need it.
Defining the dimensionstyle once in any part/psm or asm file You directly can copy it from here to the templates You are using AND - as mentioned above - to the material.mtl
So You do not need to open any template file individually, but from here.
Hope this helps!
@hawcad That's true that you can do it from the style organizer. But that's not always clear to a new person. Plus, in my case, the material.mtl is not up to date so I use my .dft template as the master for that usually. Never really understood why the default is material.mtl.
maybe it has historical reasons, but if knowing that the MTL is nothing else than a part, You will use it as depot for all settings and standards too.
And You not only have saved the format style settings but the material library too.
Maybe this was the original reason for doing it like that.
