    Trying to get "relative view" of mitered skewed pipe in below weldment.....

    Dave Krum

      Good morning,

      I need to get a drawing of a skewed pipe with miters on both ends out to shop but since this pipe is kicked in both directions, I am having trouble trying to get a nice view of it on a drawing.  I was thinking of making a reference plane along the 3d plane but not sure how to get the plane made.  If I bring just the pipe onto drawing view, it is kicked and not true to the length I need (the 3d line is 34.72 in length so my pipe should be around that).  Am I on the right track of needing a ref. plane developed that I can pick when using "relative view" of the pipe once within the drawing?  I've also attached the .sldprt.  Thanks in advance!
