Using Sketch for dimensioning in Drawing

There might be situations when you need to use a sketch to show some dimension in a drawing.  You simply turn on the sketch and create the required dimensions.

Now next thing will be to hide the sketch as you don’t want to show it up. So you simply right click on the sketch in the feature manager and set the sketch to hide.

Oops, to your surprise, the dimension which you have created have also puffed off (or better to say they hide too). Now if you turn the sketch on (or show) then only you can see the dimensions which you don’t want. So here is simple trick to get what you need.

  1. Set the sketch to show and create the required dimensions.
  2. Right click on the sketch in the feature manager and set the sketch to hide.
  3. Now is the real thing. Right click on the sketch in the feature manager and select show dimensions.

Hurray, you have the dimensions back to live (which you have created earlier) with your sketch hidden.
