Tolerance Defaults

The default tolerance settings for DimXpert Document Properties are based on the document's drafting standard. When you select the ANSI (ASME) standard, the defaults are based on common machined parts used in industry practice. When you select the ISO, DIN, JIS, BSI, GOST, or GB standards, the defaults are based on ISO 2768-1 "f" designation and the 0.5 to 3mm size range, as applicable.
