The dimension shown below dimensions to the intersection of the inside bends. the problem with that is it isnt clear where the dimension is going to. Is there a way to show intersection lines as dashed lines or something similar.

Hi @MagRiz

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

so OK, than there are two option I see immedeately:

 

Either change the ettings for Your dimensions to not have any gap for Projection Lines

or to add small circle in view add those intersection points.

I use thme for dimensioning too:

@hawcad thanks, but thats not quite what im after

Hi @MagRiz

 

 

so no there are no dimension options or setting to get them by itself.

 

BTW:

if You always compare SE with SW You will not get happy it all.

What does not mean that we can not try to improve SE functionality.

And virtual point extensions of course would be one good enhancement.

 

And regarding to another post "Smart DIm is not Smart", I just have seen in the video, that in SW You also have/can/must press CTRL, SHIFT etc., to define which option You want.

So there is no big difference to smart dimension with Shift or A pressed?

Wolfgang,

 

The two circles that you showed...  are they dimension properties or are they points that you stuck in manually?
