In one of one of my GD&T books, they mention "Compound (multiple) datums" i.e. a part mounted between centers, which is the way my part will be made.
They show datum A and B being the center drill spot on each end of a shaft, with runout callouts referencing datum A-B.
I have not been able to reproduce this in SW for several reasons.
When I am selecting datums for the Auto Dimension Scheme:
1- SW is not accepting a conical surface (i.e. a center drill spot) for a datum.
2- I can't create a compound hole (or I can't get SW to recognize a compound hole).
It seems backwards to turn a part between centers, with a cylindrical boss as datum, and then specify runout on the center drills.
Any ideas, or is it just a case of "you can't get there from here"?
