  • Distance in Y axis not showing between two entities.

    I would like top preface this post by saying I have been looking for a solution to this problem but haven't found anything relevant. If this is repetitive please redirect me.
    I am working on making a routine for production, I am stepping away from Xact, as reporting was a problem for operators to read properly. I am attempting to use Distance to give operators clear dimensions to write in QC reports, However when applying a distance to a pair of entities (dowel holes) I can only see or get it to give me one Axis.. I am sure there is an easy solution, but I can't seem to get it done.

    I'm guessing your program is in the Y workplane for where you are trying to put that dimension.

      change your current workplane.

        You are not in the correct working plane if you need to dimension the distance in the y direction

          Thanks, that was clearly a "forrest through the trees" issue for me, I appreciate the extra eyes at times like that. Thanks.

          What I've done in cases like this is to create an alignment to the first hole (assuming it is a hole), and then do a Location Dimension to the second. That'll give you both X and Y dimensions.

          We have quite a few drawings that we have features called out in relation to one another. I'll either do it as described above, or get my Location Dimension for X or Y, and then get a simple distance dim for the opposing axis, giving be both X and Y.
