You can view and edit the properties of characteristics in the Characteristic properties function window.
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
|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
|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
→Tolerance table (Please note the legal information stated there)
