Dimensioning: Parts

Set this advanced option to TRUE to dimension the position of parts to the edge that is nearest to the neighbor part. The default is FALSE.

In the image below, the neighbor parts in the model are blue, and the plate creation points are shown.

For more information about using advanced options when adding dimensions to plates, see Add dimensions to plates.

This advanced option is role specific. When the type SYSTEM(ROLE) is in use, the default value is used. When the type MODEL(ROLE) or DRAWING(ROLE) is in use, you can change the value, which is then the same for all users in the current model.
