AutoCAD Inventor :: Ordinate Diameter Dimensioning?

Aug 10, 2009

I design molds for the rubber industry and I was using Acad 2000; I am just now starting to use inventor. I need to used the ordinate dimensioning although I need the dimension to be given as a diameter and not as a radius. Is there anyway to scale the ordinate dimension automatically as 2:1? This way when I give the prints to the tool room they don't have to manually double every diametrical dimension. The prints that I draw only show half of the mold, there for needing a 2:1 dimension scale.

AutoCad 2D :: Moving UCS For Ordinate Dimensioning?

Jul 23, 2013

I'm using AutoCAD 2012, and trying to move my UCS within a viewport to a corner of my detail, but when I start to dimension using ordinate dimensioning, my point of origin (0.000) it gives me (1009.2003). In AutoCAD 2002, I could move my UCS within a viewport and start ordinate dimensioning and my (0.000) would be where I moved my UCS to.

I am trying to dimension using ordinate dimensioning style, but I couldn't get some of the lines to change at specified points by 90 degree, and then to continue parallel to the first line. The default couldn't be bent to 90 degree, and desn't stop at where I wanted to bend.

AutoCad 2D :: Refresh Memory On Ordinate Dimensioning?

Jul 26, 2012

I haven't done this in several years, and my notes are apparently incomplete. Enclosed is an image of the type of ordinate dimensioning that I want, and also my faulty notes. Maybe someone here can add the missing pieces. When I follow my notes, for some reason the UCS is displayed, whereas in the past it wasn't. I am using Version 2000 if it matters.

Notes: Tools/New UCS/Origin this yields small selection square select top right hand corner, for the zero point, then from the Tool Bar: Dimension/Ordinate, to mark the corner with zeroes.Image00256.jpg

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ordinate Dimension To Apparent Intersection? (but Not Using Ordinate Set)

Jun 11, 2013

There was a message on here about using Ordinate Set to create an ordinate dimension to an apparent intersection and I've managed to do that, but is there a way to use just Ordinate to dimension to an apparent intersection? I've tried dragging and right click menu but no luck.

I'm using Inventor Professional 2012.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ordinate Dim To Sketch Entities

Feb 20, 2012

We're having a problem with Ordinate dimensions.  When we dimension to a radius corner, we dim to the "implied intersection" of the two lines, rather than to the center of the radius.  We make a sketch with the two "tick marks", then dim to the intersection of the tick marks. 

Ordinate dimensions are not allowing us to pick the intersection:  it wants to put two (or three) dimensions, one to each end of one or the other tick marks (see attached).  We use Ordinate dims about once a year, but I'm sure I remember being able to ordinate dimension to the tick marks.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Adding To Ordinate Dimensions

Mar 20, 2013

I have had to revise a part that someone else created at some earlier date.They used the ordinate dimensions, which works perfectly and looks good.

I have had to add some holes to this part, but can not figure out how to add more dimensions to the existing ones, outside of deleting the dimensions and dimensioning them all over again.

How do I add more ordinate dimensions to the existing?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Remove Ordinate Dimension?

Apr 22, 2009

Inventor to remove an Ordinate dimension (not Ordinate Dimension Set). It seems you can only make one per view. And you can only edit the dimension, i.e. the Origin symbol, but not delete it !? Don't know if there is a change from previous versions of Inventor to 2009.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Object Snap Settings In Ordinate Dimensions?

Jan 9, 2013

We use ordinate dimensions for all holes in parts.  Unfortunately there seems to be features frequently left out of ordinate dimension mode.  For instance, by default Inventor uses center and quadrant object snaps.  Unlike in normal dimension mode, there is no right click option for disabling quadrant snaps.  This is a constant annoyance, especially when dimensioning a print with a lot of holes.  Is there any other way or hidden setting to disable the quadrant snap?  In addition, add member is missing from the new "marking menu"  completely so we have to enable the old right click menu to get it back.  Are we the only ones using ordinate dimensions?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Ordinate Dimension Origin - Set To A Hidden Hole?

Aug 20, 2012

how to set my origin point to a hole center. When you create the first ordinate dimension, you have to set the origin marker.  For the upper view, I want to set the origin to be the same as the view below it.  I can set it to the end of one of the hidden lines from the hole, but I can't seem to set the origin to the center of the hole.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Place Ordinate Dimension To Theoretical Sharp Corner

Aug 19, 2003

I'm trying to place my ordinate dimension to a theoretical sharp corner and the dimension will only go to the end of the arc (see pict). I try and drag the dimension end point by selecting the end of on line and dragging it over, select the other line and drag it till the two yellow dots meet at the intersection.

When I let go of the mouse button to place the dimension it pops to one side or the other of the arc.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2012 - Create Ordinate Sets From Opposite Edges Without Multiple Zeros?

Jul 5, 2012

I'm detailing a simple square plate with a good number of holes in it.  I create an ordiate set running vertically along the LH edge and select the holes that are close to that side.  Origin is the lower LH corner.  Works great, easy.

The holes that are closer to the RH side though I'd like to show on that side.  So I go to create a second ordinate set for the RH side and choose the lower RH corner as the origin and choose my holes that are close to that edge.  The 2nd set will automatically show a second "0.000" dimension on the bottom edge and I can't supress it by right clicking.

Is there a better way to do this?  What I've done now is to not use a set but just choose ordinate dimension and go from the opposite edge, which works....  But alignment is better with a set.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using Created Dimensioning Styles

Feb 27, 2012

I needed to create new dimensioning styles - that I can do.  However, there doesn't seem to be a way to apply them to a current drawing.  In the Annotation section under Format there are no "styles" listed  - not even the default.

So, how is one able to populate the list so one may choose a specific style or another?  Or, is there somewhere else I should be looking?
