Dimensioning an Isometric View


New member
I put an isometric view on my drawing and when I went to dimension it,my dimensionscame in normal to the drawing and not parallel and perpendicular to the view. I've done this before on ProE 2001 and I can't figure out how to do it on Wildfire 2.0.

I've tried this and it only works for "shown dimensions". It doesn't work for specific dimensions that I need to put in.

Add a reference dimension in the part or assembly mode and show them in the drawing. You will need to rotate the leaders and witness lines in the detail mode to place them into the desired position. I know its not a good method but if any body knows ofsomething better, please let us know.

Best Regards, Patrick

ps: wewould modify the dimension properties to remove the parentheses.
