    Dimensioning on Sketch plane normal to a surface.

    Albert Brain
      I have a hole pattern on a surface or side that I need to start. I have placed the first tapped hole in the upper left hand corner. What I need to do is to dim. this hole then change the dim to move the hole. SW won't allow me to change the dim. I need to mention that this face is on a 20 deg angle. Any suggestions? Thanks.

          Albert,

          Zip the file into an archive and post it here so we can see what you are trying to do.

          If the surface is planer, select the surface/face/plane first then invoke the hole wizard command. You will get a 2D sketch rather then a 3D sketch. Most likely what you really want and easier to dimension.

          If you invoke hole wizard first you get a 3D sketch to work with.

          Cheers,
