If I've got a centerline in a drawing created from a cirlce in one view and the corresponding rectancle in the projected view, then break the projected view the centre mark from the first view moves off centre.
Also dimensioning from the centre line to a line in the projected views (not necessarily broken) doesn't work.
I know I can use bisect centre line and stretch it to meet a centre mark in the base view but every time i move the view I've got to adjust it. It's what I'm doing now but it's a bit of a pain.
Any better solutions to this, as I think this is a fairly basic feature of drawings, and should be as straight forward as can be. Thanks if I get a response, but I don't think I will
You would need to "anchor" the line to geomtry in the view to keep it moving with the view as the break shifts the items.
Select the view, then create new sketch, Project one of the vertical lines, then create a horizontal line from the midpoint of the projected vertical line. Change the line-type of the line construction or center and drag it long enough to get over to the next view.
Don't know how else to get a line from one view to another view in Inventor as each view is it's own.
here is a screen capture of what I'm doing and what the problems are.
here are a couple of examples from Australian Standards, which are based o ISO virtually word for word.
As you can see it isn't forbidden, I think it is actaully much more logical to do it it some instances.
It's not really a carry over from AutoCAD as I have only really used Inventor, (tiny bit of AutoCAD), do do actual drafting.
Like I've said before I understand fully that the views are totally separate entities, and it is probably a bit of a pain in the arse to get them to talk to each other, in order to do this (don't know why they didn't do it in the first place, there must be some relation, as the projected view needs to refernce the base view anyhow).
