Hello out there.
Simple sm part with holes put in at flat status. (see part)
Within the flat pattern in the drawing I can not pick centers or quadrant points for dimensioning.
Any help? Thanks.
The flat pattern is not normal to any of the planes. One option is to create a view in the part that is normal to the face with the holes in it and then import this created view into the drawing.
alot of thanks for your answer. I tried w/ your idea and it does not work. I the uhf1 model now , if flattened, the upper flat surface is not only parallel to the top plane it is coincident with it. In sketch19 I can pick the circumferences of the circles and dimension them to one edge. But in the dwg. they are not circles anymore.
I can't explain exactly what's going on, but it appears that since your base flange was a radius, and a good way to make this part, that even though the holes were cut inside of an unfold/fold, they develop out as a spline in the flat.
But the good news is that you can still get there - just because you can't go the normal route doesn't mean you are hosed. In the flat pattern for the config in the drawing, also suppress the Fold feature - then the holes wil be circles.
Wayne and Tim,
to both of you many thanks.
Friend Chuck and I tried on "real" company parts and using that special configuration w/ suppresing the 'unfold' works.
