I am aware of that, but that only works if the face of the part is
parallel to the view plane. The method I am suggesting will give true
dimension for any orientation in the part if it is possible. I prefer
setting up my parts for the front, right and top views I will use in
the drawing so that I can reliably automate drawing production.
The one I was thinking of was...select a edge in a view, got to TOOLS /
ALIGN DRAWING VIEW / and then pick HORIZONTAL or VERTICAL edge and the view
will rotate accordingly. The view I was trying to orient was a flat of a
lofted bend which has not straight edges..so this method didn't work.
