Does anyone know if there is an easy way to show a "clipped" dimension in a detail view of a draft?
Using the symmetric diameter callout, a user can dimension from the centerline of a main view to the diameter of a detail view, and the diameter will show as "clipped" in the detail view. I'd like to do this with a linear dimension.
Siemens should really expand on the symmetric diameter function. It could be used for more than diameters.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think this also is not really a problem
Create Your linear dimension as You said from main view to the detail view and then set the projection line and dimension line to not visible.
Finally a move of the dimension text to the wanted position.
See video :
Hope this helps
and a thirt option would be to use a "Coordinate Dimension" but here You would have a "0" dimension at the origin, but this IMHO makes the draft better readable and understandable.
In genereal I would like to say there are enough functions and methods to create Your wanted dimension
I hope You will agree
