It is a neat feature that when dimensioning between a line and a construction line you can specify the distance as if the construction line was a center line. Is there a way to do this if both lines are construction lines (double distance)?
dimension to the endpoint of the non-center construction line.
Not that I know of.
Even if one line is changed to solid to place the dimension, when it is changed back to construction, the doubled-dimension reverts to single.
Thanks, that'll work. I can't explain why that didn't occur to me!
Nor me, because I do that all the time.
I drew a circle and changed it to dashed line display. It is to show the overall diameter of the bolt circle pattern, and Solidworks will not let me "Smart Dimension" it.
Why would that be?
Simply add the BC (construction line) to your sketch and dimension it there.
Then just show the sketch and insert model items.
