Trying to make a PMI view and show dimensions

Phenom

We just created a PMI model view so we could then show the dimensions in an ISO view on the drawing, went smoothly except we're getting these lines extending from the projection lines and I don't know how to remedy this. I don't know where these are attached to as these dims were made with the plane on this front face taht the holes are on.

Seems pretty funky. Seems like they're going to a sketch that was on a base plane.

Hi @nominus38

 

 

 

besides the fact that the answer is hard without having that data let me say, that You can create such dimensins in a drawing view only without the need of building a PMI view first.

 

But it should be possible anyway

@hawcadYes I am aware, though it becomes rather tough with the radius'd sheet metal, and being able to select edges that you cannot actually see in the iso view. This is why Tuck was trying to place them in the model view and pull it into the drawing.

 

Thanks guys. Appreciate the help.

Finally had time to go and try this myself and I ended up with the same issue as he did. I recorded a vid below (hopefully) that shows what is happening with this. I notice that when i move the dimensions up the line disappears after the dim is above the bottom flange of the plenum.
