I am starting to see what you mean about the draftingAs you use CATIA more and more you will learn how great and powerful it is as a 3D modeler and yet how weak it is for drafting
CATIA V5 has no capability to make a dimension reference - you have to type in a parenthesis before and after the value.
I've noticed some users have a little macro that will add the parenthesis. If I can find it, I'll add something to this thread.
Great thank you!I found the macro program. Jus copy&paste the code below into a new macro on your system:
Dim MySel As Selection
Set MySel = CATIA.ActiveDocument.Selection
Dim MyDim As DrawingDimension
Dim Array1 As String
Dim Array2 As String
Dim Array3 As String
Dim Array4 As String
For i = 1 To MySel.Count
If TypeName(MySel.Item(i).Value) = "DrawingDimension" Then
Set MyDim = MySel.Item(i).Value
MyDim.GetValue.SetBaultText 1, "(", ")",Array3,Array4
