Dimensions in Drafting Workbench


New member
I have doubt about editing of dimensions in drafting workbench and will it automatically update in the part. When I tried to edit the dimension by right clicking it displays grey shaded and I am not able to change the dimension in drafting workbench.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Baback,
You can change the dimensions in drafting workbench and update it in part workbench as CATIA is Bi- directional. Go to Tools>>Options>>Mechanical>>Drafting>>Administation tab and uncheck "Dress up" option. Now if you right click the dimensions in the drafting you can edit the values and it will update in the part work bench.
