Symetric and Plus-Minus in the Family Table


New member
I have a Family Table and it has 3 parts. One instance has Symetric tolerances and the others are Plus-Minus. How to change the tolerance symetric to plus-minus

Thanks in advance.

I don't believe it is possible to put dimension formats into the family table. The best you can do is format the dimension as plus-minus, add each tolerance to the family table and set the values as needed. The symmetric instance will just have to have equal plus and minus values. It may not look pretty but no one should have any problem understanding it.
