Structure

Only the properties that are available for a specific characteristic are displayed.

Note The following examples show the status as of programme version 2.8.0.

Example: Variable characteristic

Example: Attributive characteristic

If several characteristics are selected, only properties that are available for all characteristics are displayed. Different values are displayed accordingly (text fields: […]; list fields: no content; option fields: ; Selection fields: ).

Example: Multiple selection


Properties

Property Short description Reference
Stamp marking Unique tagging of the characteristic. Consists of a stamp number, the optional prefix and the optional suffix. More > Terms > Stamp
Title Reflects the significant property assignments of the characteristic. Settings > Settings > Characteristics > "Format characteristic title” group
Prefix An optional prefix of your choice for the stamp number, issued with the stamp number and suffix as a stamp marking. More > Terms > Stamp
Stamp number Non-negative integer as a unique tag for a characteristic. Issued together with the optional prefix and the optional suffix as a stamp marking. More > Terms > Stamp

Settings > Settings > Stamp
Suffix An optional suffix of your choice for the stamp number, issued with the stamp number and optional prefix as a stamp marking. More > Terms > Stamp
Type Assignment of the fundamental characteristic property “variable” or “attributive”. Characteristic
Value Text as it will be read from a drawing specification. Measurement (sizes-)
Class Type of characteristic that provides information on how to interpret the properties. Class
Category Relevance / priority of the characteristic for the test. Category

Settings > Project settings > Categories
Tag Individual property, for example a reference to a measurement procedure or a test intensity. Tag

Settings > Project settings > Tags
Nominal size Intolerant part of the dimension in the form of the measured value. The unit of measurement results from the assigned characteristic class. Measurement (sizes-)
Upper tolerance Position of the upper measurement limit. Either specified as an upper dimension or upper limit measurement or maximum. The unit of measurement results from the assigned class. Measurement (sizes-)
Lower tolerance Position of the lower measurement limit. Either specified as a lower dimension or lower limit measurement or minimum. The unit of measurement results from the assigned characteristic class. Measurement (sizes-)
Tolerance class Abbreviation, consisting of the basic dimension and basic tolerance level in accordance with DIN EN ISO 286-1 and DIN EN ISO 286-2 (“Tolerance, dimensions and fits”), e.g. “H7”.
Reference References from a reference system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 1101 (“Tolerance of shape, direction, location and course”), e.g. “A”.
B-System References from reference systems other than those in accordance with DIN EN ISO 1101 (“Tolerance of shape, direction, location and course”).
Modifiers Specification modifiers valid for this characteristic, specified as abbreviations, e.g. “E” for determining the enveloping condition. Specification operators and modifiers
Comment Individual comment about the characteristic, e.g. a test note.
Repetitions Number of geometry elements to which the measurement element refers.
Field Key to the field in which the characteristic can be found on the drawing sheet. Functions > Drawings > Define field layout

Drawing sheet
Tolerance table Select tolerance table to be used to determine the dimension or limit measurements. The tables can be selected from a corresponding norm and tolerance class or series. Settings > Project settings > Tolerance tables
