How do I switch the datum display in a drawing?


New member
I have some drawings that show the Datum A as a box with lines

and other drawings that show it as a suction cup.

What variable shows this?
That setting is in drawing setup file (.dtl file.)

Option: gtol_datums

Value: std_ansi (datum A as a box)

std_iso_jis (suction cup)

More value options listed in the manual.
