Is it possible to make a dimension with a curved extension line for a curved slot in SW like shown in the picture below?
He can correct the "Correct Answer" - Definitely there are workarounds, I know what I do is to convert the edge entities and just drag the end points to make it "look" good, add some sketch points and dimension those without them showing any extension lines, what's yours ??
Anyone know of a way to do this or is it not possible in SW?
Did you want the Arc Length of the line, if you do click both end points and then pick the arc...
Thanks but I know how to do the arc length.....I'm wondering if I can do the width of the slot but have the extension lines curved like in the image in the first post.
No - the extension lines are straight
I didn't think it was possible. Thanks for your input.
you could add curves as a sketch in the drawing, and add the relations so they stay in scale.
then dim up those added curves??
FWIW, you can pick the end points and the arc segment in any order.
Thanks for everyone's input!!!
There's a workaround, but you already marked someone else's answer correct.
Warped minds think alike.
This worked out great.
Here is what it looks like.
Great - looks right - but would be nice if SW could do it without a workaround, well maybe it's not a workaround, just the way we need to do it...
