DimensionXpert and Ordinate Dimensions

Question asked by Matthew Kusters on Aug 10, 2012

I was wondering if it was possible to have dimension xpert use ordinate dimensions to dimension a part.  I am not interested in adding tolerances or GD&T.  I am just looking for a as clutter free as possible dimensions print that is done automatically.

 

I have attached an image of what we are working with currently in a really ancient 2D cad program and was looking for something similar from solidworks.  This is a simple example.  This is for flattened sheet metal parts with no bends so only one view is required (ie except for the material thickness all dimensions will be in the one plane).  Other layouts become much more busy with cutouts and ordinate dimensioning keeps it as clutter free as possible.
