Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to drag the radial dimension arrow and change th orientation from the elbow but in NX it seems difficult to do that. Every time I drag the arrow it changes the length not the angle/orientation. I know in solid edge you can manually drag the dimension arrow in whatever orientation you want but I am having trouble doing the same in NX.

Thanks.

Dag

Are you in dimension edit/create mode, or are you just dragging the dimension on the drawing sheet?

Just trying to drag them . I am not in edit mode. Here is a pic.

The pic didn't attach in the previous post.

Are these dimensions from imported data (e.g., imported DXF/DWG)?

The drawing is made from imported solid model if that is what you meant.

So the line I've highlighted red below can only be made longer?  You cannot change it's angle, to say the green lines?

No. The moment I try to change the angle or shorten the length it lengthens the same line and also lengthen the horizontal line. I cannot seem to manipulate the two lines individually from the elbow.

Can you upload an example part file?

I am having trouble uploading a part file. I get this error. "The contents of the attachment doesn't match its file type". If possible can you upload a simple part with radial dimensioning in draft and I can try to compare the setting. I am not sure whether my setting is wrong or NX doesn't have the capability to easily move around radial dimensions unlike solid edge.
