How to do the dimensioning a CAD that designed from an equation

      Hello,

      I have created a CAD model using Ansys Spaceclaim. I used an equation to design it. I need to draw the technical drawing of it (2D drawing). How can I do the dimensioning of the equation-driven curvature? The shape of the curvature is not a standard circular curvature.

      Thank you so much for any help.

      Best,

      Plesae check Details tab. It has different options for dimentions. 

      Please go through help manual for more details

      Hi Keyur,

      I have used the Details tab for creating tech drawings. The issue I have here is, that the design that I have right now is, an equation-driven design. It is not a standard shape. So I want to do the dimensioning for that. Can you advise more specifically on that, please?

       

      Thanks for your time,

      Ranhili

      In that case you will need to custom anotations.

      Many manufacturers can create parts from the solid model of the design. The tool paths are programmed directly off the solid geometry. They don't need the drawing to create the shape of the part. The drawing only adds information that is not geometry such as material, surface finish, datums and tolerances.
