Its not just for line length/diameter but any inputs that are dimensional. I use it all the time in Creo and BobCad. if you need to move something 7/64 ( or need a hole that size) its nice to just input 7/64 and get the value instead of looking it up if you can't pull it off the top of your head.
I will check out the PDF Dean, thanks. There is just a lot to forget and re-learn for me, I have used creo 5 days a week since it was ProEngineer and BobCad at home since '04.
I am using TC Plat Pro 2017 with a few plug-ins. I see what people can do with it and know I could do also. Its just 20+ years of training that I have to forget. I can pretty much create with my eyes closed using creo and I hope to get there with TC. Now that I am retired I need something other than BobCad-which I use to generate my 4 axis gcode, but it does not do assemblies.
This is very nice software for the money and I will get proficient. I have done some very detailed assemblies with hundreds of parts. My drone designs get more and more involved and I hope to be showing them off in TC files soon.
