Family Tables


New member
I have a customer wanting my drawings to be set up as dual dimensions with inches (primary) and millimeters (secondary) shown bracketed. This is not the issue though. Several of my piece part dimensions are listed in a Family Table with various levels of thicknesses and lengths depending on the dash number assigned, and I need to show them as bracketed dual dimensions as well. I was wondering if anyone has been able to convert a Family Table dimension to actually showing bracketed dual dimensions as is on my piece part drawing views? Manually entering them in, to me. kind of defeats the purpose of the Family Table. Any ideas??
