Ordinate dims in a detail


New member
Does anyone know how to insert ordinate dims into a detail view?

We can't pick the original 0.0 ref line then pick an item in the detail view. We also can't change the boundary temporarily in the detail, this leaves the 0.0 out in space when we reduce the view back down to the size we need.


In thatcase you need to assign dimensions seperately, in modeling,

so that you can assign in detail view.
