How to (automatically?) generate 2 different sets of dimensions from the same part?

Hello,

 

Here's what we are trying to do. I have built a part, which is anodized. This anodizing changes all the dimensions of the part equally by a small number, since the coating has a thickness. We generate a drawing which shows the anodized part dimensions, but we also would like to generate a second drawing which shows the PRE-anodized dimensions.

 

This sounds crazy, but is there a way to automatically reduce all the dimensions of a part by the same number? Can anyone suggest a way to generate our pre-anodized drawing, aside from manually adjusting every dimension?

 

Thanks for any advice!
