The title says it all. I'm looking to add a diameter or radius
dimension to my detail view. The center line of my part is not in the
view. How do you add this type of dimension? Will it add a broken
line? Any help would be great. Thanks.
I'm not clear on what you are asking. Are you trying to dimension the
boundary of your detail view? Otherwise, you should be able to dimension
any geometry visible within the detail view, including radii and diameters.
If you put a radius or diameter inside a curve, the dimension will go to the
center of the curve even if the center is outside the detail view. You
might want to consider moving such dimensions to the outside of the curve to
avoid this, if its undesirable.
