Creating the GDT Call-out
- Select the GDT tab

- Within the GDT panel:
- Click into the tolerance, and enter the required value
- Select the required datum
- If aligned to CAD, the result will be shown in the GDT label displayed in the 3D viewer.
- If not aligned to CAD, it is also necessary to manually enter the ‘nominal’ angle between the two features:
- Right click to right of the tolerance cell (indicated below by #)
- Then select Override Length and Angle
- Check the Override Angle box
- Enter the Nominal angle
- Select OK
The call-out will be calculated and the result will be shown in the GDT label displayed in the 3D viewer.
Note: To display results in the GDT label select via View > GDT Label > Level of Detail
