Is there a way to stop this? I have a ilogic attached to this and when it flips it messes it up and I cant have that. This has been an issue for ever.
Also after it does this you cant flip it back by just moving it like in a drawing. this is very important angle.
also I have 5 angle dims and this is the only one that will flip like this.
Just an idea, but have you tried using the three point method of angle dimension creation instead of two line segments? Might work in this case, might not.
will not work for this but thanks.
times like this (and when I've got angles/dims going through zero) I specifically dim to an non-obvious line that gets the dim away from zero.
Here I'd dim to a line near perpendicular so the angle is about 99 degrees instead of 9 - does that help? If I've got a point that I know will pass through zero as I change dims about then I tend to draw a line x away from the point and then dim back as x+y (where x >> y) - silly, i know, but avoids the annoying flipping back and forward out of control...
To be honest I don't understand this is the dim need to calculate my length so I have to do math stuff in ilogic to give me the arc length.
but if I try to understand I will have to add more math to subtract 90° to get the same I have now. are you saying...
yes, try it from a perpendicular line and add/subtract 90 in the logic code.
makes everything really confusing when you come to look at it again in the future, but Inventor's dimensions seems to behave better (for me).
ok I will see if it will work. I guess a working work around is better than this.
nope it flipped too...
