Sheetmetal Model Dimensions


New member
OK, I've learned that I can right mouse click on dimensions, while in the modeling of a solid part, to edit the properties so I can make toleranced dimensions. Note that I said solid part, I can't seem to do the same for a sheetmetal part. How do I edit the properties of a sheetmetal dimension so that I can add tolerances?

Sure, when you're in the sheetmetal mode you should have the menu manager on the right hand side. Click Modify -> Dimensions and then pick the feature you want to modify and then pick the dimension on the screen that you want to modify, right mouse click when you're done selecting and you should be in the Dimension Properties box.
