Co-ordinate workflow

Hi all,

 

Is there a better work flow for tabulating co-ordinates?

My current workflow is to;

 

1. Model a pipe run in situ’

2. Create a 3D sketch to get the virtual sharp co-ordinate

3. Use the measure tool to get the virtual sharp co-ordinate

4. Manually copy this into a table within the Inventor drawing.

5. Place general dimensions on for “General overall X,Y & Z” sizes for identification.

 

I can’t help feeling I am doing way too much manual input giving rise to the inevitable human error.

Hopefully, there may be an easier quicker way?

 

Thanks in advance
