Foreshorten or some other method?

Question asked by Matt Juric on Dec 20, 2018

I've run into this issue on and off since I've been using SW and have not come up with a solution. On occasion I have a a part with a feature where the center line of it is well off the drawing sheet. I would like to locate that center line from some feature on the part. I've tried several ways and generally don't find any of them satisfying.


In the below picture is an example. The large construction circle does not exist. I placed that in there and that was the only way I got the linear dim to show the foreshorten symbol. However I can't figure out how to modify that dim at all and point it toward the CL of the foreshortened diameter.


Is there someway to make this happen or a better way to dimension it?
