Starting with Creo 8, Dimension creation command is now accessible while working with GD&T advisor and create tolerance features. This streamlines the annotation process with GD&T Advisor and allows User to create required dimensions without exiting the tool.

The workflow for creating a dimension while you are working with GD&T Advisor:

  • The required dimensions for the definition of a tolerance feature are not found.
  • Switch to the Annotate tab, select the appropriate annotation plane, and then create the required dimensions that will be used by the tolerance feature.
  • Switch to the Tolerance Feature tab and auto match to find the newly created dimension to finish the definition of the tolerance feature.

User Interface: While creating a tolerance feature with GD&T Advisor, click Annotate —> Dimension.
