I have an extruded surface with a point on it and would like to copy this point to the opposite side of the surface (parallel plane) while keeping it in the same spot that it would be at if the planes were on top of each other. The best way I've found to do this so far is to smart dimension both points but I would prefer a method that will move both points if one point moved.
Also, when I am looking at the opposite side of the extrusion, is there a way to stop points and lines on the former side from showing through (other than hiding individual sketches)? I've tried adjusting transparency and switching to opaque but this seemed to have no effect.
I've noticed that if I extrude a rectangle and there was anything else sketched (inside or outside the rectangle), these parts of the sketch disappear after the extrusion. I'm guessing this is because of the hierarchy used by the property manager but if there is a way to display the entire sketch I'd like to know how.
I'm putting points on both sides of extrusions in an attempt to line up electronic panel-mount components (I'm making a top and bottom as two separate parts) with the panel (surface) they are to be mounted to. If anyone has a recommendation on a better method to use I'd love to read it. I've been considering cutting a hole in the surface and trying to line the components up with that but I'm worried this will make it more difficult to move the components. I'd still like to have an answer to the original questions, even if a better method is mentioned.
