Using a Customized General Tolerance File

In DimXpert, when you use the General Tolerance method, you can use the general tolerance file that you have customized for your specific design requirements.

To use a customized general tolerance file:

  1. Click Options (Standard toolbar) or Tools > Options.
  2. On the Document Properties tab, click DimXpert.
  3. Under Methods, select General Tolerance.
    Options in the General tolerance section are enabled. The following options are available for Tolerance class:
    • Four non-customizable options (Fine, Medium, Coarse, Very Coarse) based on ISO 2768-1.
    • Two customizable options (Custom1 and Custom2) defined in the custom general tolerance file (general tolerances.xlsx).
  4. For Tolerance class:
    1. Select Custom1 or Custom2.
    2. Click Load Custom to load the custom values.
      Later, if you make changes to the general tolerance file or change the file location, return to this dialog box and click Load Custom again.
  5. Click OK to confirm that you want to load the values.
  6. Click OK.

    To use Custom1 or Custom2 as the default tolerance class in new models, edit your existing document template or create a new document template.

    Otherwise, every time you create a new model, you need to click Tools > Options > Document Properties > DimXpert, select Custom1 or Custom2, and click Load Custom.
