Is there a way to add a note that references a datum points position relative to a coord system? I have to call out mounting positions on a vehicle and have been adding the data manually but occasionally I screw up.

I would like it to be parametric but suspect I would need bmx.

Also creating points relative to coord system is too slow?cumbersome (doesnt update).

Any ideas?

To solve the note problem turn on the config.pro option allow_anatomic_features YES, you now have Datum Evaluate features. Create a measurement of distances and store them. Now you can use the values in a parametric note. The attach points must have some geometry asoc with them. Create a point in the model crvxsrf or such using an axis and the surface of the mount. then show the points in a view on the drw and attach the parametric note to it.

Good luck.
