Creating Geometric Tolerancing Symbols

  1. Do one of the following:
    • For parts, click Geometric Tolerance (MBD Dimension toolbar) or Tools > DimXpert > Geometric Tolerance. See DimXpert for Parts Overview.
    • For drawings, click Geometric Tolerance (Annotation toolbar) or Insert > Annotations > Geometric Tolerance.
  2. Set options in the Properties dialog box and the Geometric Tolerance PropertyManager.
    As you add items, a preview is displayed.
  3. Click to place the symbol.
    • Click as many times as necessary to place multiple copies.
    • If the symbol has a leader, click once to place the leader, then click a second time to place the symbol.
      When you insert geometric tolerance symbols that use Auto Leader , you must hover over the entity to highlight the entity and to attach the leader. The leader does not appear until you hover over the entity.
    • You can change text and other items in the dialog box for each instance of the symbol.
    • While dragging the symbol and before placing it, hold down Ctrl. The note stops moving, but the leader continues, lengthening the leader. While still holding Ctrl, click to place the leader. Click as many times as necessary to place additional leaders. Release Ctrl and click to place the symbol.
  4. Click OK.
