Dimensioning between two views for layout?

I am trying to layout several flat patterns for a plasma table print.  Problem is I cannot dimension between the views to lay them out.  Is there some way to do this?  I already tried converting the view into a sketch breaking all links back to the original model (or at least that is what I thought it said), but it stayed as a view and didn't just become a sketch entity in the drawing.  I know I could save the drawing as a .dwg and then reopen it with autocad and do this, but that is a pain in the butt.  Isn't there any 2D layout brains here?  I mean it does have drawings.

 

I suppose I could make an assembly of the flat patterns and then make a print from that, but again that is a pain and it would seem like something that should be not necessary.

 

Any ideas?
