Drawing (Association)


New member
I need some help I am having problems with my drawing dimensions being linked to the actual part.

I am showing dimensions in the drawing and then modifying the tolerance. Some times I move a tolerence outside the actual values of the part. For example Sketch in part might say .715 so I change the tolerence value to .710 - .705 with the shown dimension on the drawing. Then I regenerate everything and when you measure the area in the part the part is at .715 and I have the config checked to yes (maintain_limit_tol_nominal).

This is wild fire 2.0 I am working on. Can we modify throught the actual drawing?
