I'm trying to dimension a gauge point using a diameter and distance dimension as shown here:
I created a sketch within the view and dimensioned a point placed on a part edge from the 3D centerline I created from the OD of the part. It seems that you cannot create a driving dimension from a 3D centerline, but I don't know how else to get a diameter dimension in a detail section view like this. Any suggestions?
Also, the axial dimension of the gage point will be from datum A which is on the other end of the part and outside this detail view. How should I create this dimension? The best idea I have so far is to sketch a line off the page, create a single-sided dimension, and override the dimension value. I could also put both views on one page but I'd like to avoid that so I can have a larger scale view.
