Hi @Famer

 

 

 

due to the fact that we do not have the original draft file for verifying, I only can assume following:

 

You have created Your point on paper space rather than inside the view.

 

So Your dimension point from an element on paper (scale 1:1) to an element from a drawing view with a ceratin draft scale.

If this draft scale is 1:1 everything is OK.

But if You have a different draft scale and Your dimension was created starting from the point on paper the dimension scale insied is 1:1 and stays 1:1

 

This was a common behaviour of Solid Edge in former versions.

So I also only can assume that You are not on current version of Solid Edge

 

Doesn't matter anyway.

 

The correct prcoedere to handle such a task is to use the "Draw in View" command on the RMB (Right Mouse Button) over an draft view.

 

Inside the view You then create Your helping elements - suggest to use a small circle rather than a point (it is seen better and You can use the C command for center)

 

And do not forget You also can use the "Intersection method to get it right!

 

 

I will create a short video and upload within the next minutes.

Hi @Famer

 

 

the inplace video should be possible to view with a simple click on the play button.

No download etc.

 

Maybe this has to do with Your browser, setting, operating system etc.

Hi, "Use draw in view" has nearly solved my issues of dimensioning construction lines placed over a model view and keeping the right scale......however when I dimension in "draw in view" and then switch to sheet view, the dimension lines are way off where I placed them, and can't be edited from sheet view! Any solution?

Hi @JPac

 

 

my suggestion for this will be: "To not draw this in a draft view and dimension it!"

 

Just do it in 3D document as a sketch.

You can retrieve (show) this sketch in draft too, together with all dimensions as YOu need them.

And - important - once You have created this sketch You always can us it together with that part without the need of repeatiing the same work again and again.

 

And geometry is associative and usable in part too.

Hi there @JPac,

 

We often use the "Draw in View" function here, to show situational information that we don't want in the 3D model,  and when placing dimensions, they [and some other sketch geometry] are always placed on the "Auto - Hide" layer, unless we forget, and have to go back in and use the "Move Elements" command.
