Viewing the center line of a revoled pattern

Instead of creating a curve to show centerline of a revoled pattern. Their was a time it would appear by just doing a show centerline. Any help. I am using 2001

Not sure if this is what you mean but...



there is a config.pro setting to show the centerline of a bolt circle pattern. I don't have pro in front of me right now, otherwise I would give you the exact terminology

Whoops my bad, so much for relying on my memory.



The actual setting is in drawing set up; go to (in drawing mode)



drawing>advanced> drawing set up



and look for the parameter : radial_pattern_axis_circle

under the axes group and set it to yes



then when you show/erase axes, if you have patterned a circular pattern the bolt circle center line shows up. works with either holes or cuts.



let me know if you want a file

Thanks Bem. I think I've got it. It appears that someone in proi admin. forgot about having to show these centerlines.

Anyway what do you do for a living? I'm working a contract at Lockheed Martin. In Colorado.
