    How can I dimension a hole that must be drilled in an angle?

    Gabriel Guzman

      Hi, my name is Gabriel, I want to thank anyone who can help me in advance. My issue is that I have a part that has a hole that needs to be drilled and Im wondering how to dimension this feature when I make the drawing. I have two pictures that Im attaching that will show the part with a pin gauge simulating the feature. My question is how would this feature be correctly dimensioned? I want to control this feature in relation to the center ID (but of course Im open for suggestions), I named the center ID ID1 in the pictures and the feature were discussing ID2 to facilitate understanding my question. Should I give an angle from ID1 to the center of ID2, and then an angle from the surface of the part to the center of ID2? Then how can I dimension the center? How can I best control it? Please let me know of any insight anyone could offer me, thank you very much.
