Hi

Atattched is a Zip file with a PDF file with a simple 30mm thk shape with a 11 deg chamfer this = a 6mm bevel.

The dimensions on the section view look upside down in relation to the view, what i would like is to be able to do is dimension like the hand sketch next to it.

I know this is contary to the draughting standard (ISO), but is it possible.

Or what would you surgest as a work around. I do not want to rotate the view, and have been placing a line under the dimension (this was also missed)

The reason for asking is one of our burners read the 6mm dimension as 9mm and burnt a 20 meter plate incorrectly.

Thanks
