You can specify an overall drafting standard that provides defaults for all detailing options. Overall drafting standards apply to all detail settings unless you derive settings for a particular set of details from another base detail standard.
For example, all detail settings derive defaults from the ANSI standard when you set the Overall drafting standard to ANSI. Diameter dimensions derive default settings from the ISO standard when you set the Base diameter dimension standard to ISO.
To select an overall standard:
- Select Drafting Standard from the Document Properties tab.
- Select an overall standard.
You can also change, load, or save the overall drafting standard.
To customize a base standard for a selected detail:
- Select the detail, such as , from the Document Properties tab.
- Select a base standard for the detail, for example, the Base balloons standard.
A base detail standard supersedes overall drafting standard settings for the selected detail.
