  • Dimension to far ends of a radius (not the center)

    Someone help me out with something please! I need to report from where my alignment is at right now to both the top and bottom radii in the picture (YAXIS). I put a red dot for clarity. Far ends of the radii.
    Thanks in advance!

    Construct a point at the origin then use distance and select circle options add radius

        That will work well but my preference is to set your xyz origin to the center and report th PR (polar radian) from the Cartesian location icon, to the point, just in case the point is off axis... YOU can also report the PA (polar angle) as reference where the point is... you can do this to multiple points on this radius, without adding the radius.
