HOW DO I OBTAIN PART-ENVIRONMENT DIMENSION STYLE WITHIN THE DRAWING-ENVIRONMENT
What the figure shows on the right-hand side is exactly what i wish to have but within the drawing environment. On the Left-Hand side is what is currently obtainable and there seems to be no options.
The dimensions[values/numbers] within the part environment,on the RH-side clearly lie in the same plane
Yet those on the left are kind of perpenducular to their leaders which does’nt look as good.
There is a setting to do with it under “Options – System Options – Display\Selection – Display dimensions flat on screen” but that seems only to work within the “assembly” and “part” environments. Am currently using the 2010 version but can upgrade if it is only possible in newer versions.
Other problems i get in the drawing environment and also here too, in the Left-Hand diagram, are;
The 20mm dimension which fails to lie in the same plane as the rest.
I tried 3 different ways here to make it including dimensioning; the line, the line ends, the upper end of the line and the lower plane, but failed throughout.
ie; it would snap back as i positioned it.
So the question is, how do i DETERMINE THE PLANE in which a dimension should lie when i position it?
Lastly and least, is about some dimensions which stubbonly snap out of position everytime you try to fix them back.
ie; the 15mm dimension on the lower side.
