Siemens NX – Basic Dimension with Appended Text

To add appended text to the basic dimension, it requires specific text control character format.

The required text control character format is ‘<#An>‘ where n – a numeric value.


<#A2> will display as 2X

<#A3> will display as 3X

To add appended text or a multiplier inside the basic dimension box, follow the steps.

1) Select the dimension > RMB > Edit Appended Text.
2) Enter the text in the required format “<#A2>“.
3) ‘2X’ will be displayed as a prefix in the basic dimension box.

Same method is applicable in the PMI application.
