I'm currently using WF3 and I can't find how you could insert a centerline through a cylinder in an imported part. I'm trying to analyze the center to center distance of two holes in a imported iges file. Any suggestions?
If the hole geometry is not cylindrical (at least not recognized by Pro/E as being so) then you can create a Sketched Point at the center of a construction circle. This would even work for a symmetrical, non-circular cut. The circle is used as tangent to your symmetrical edges, or in the case of a non-perfect cylinder, tangent to 3 edges that approximate the cylinder represented. Then create the axis through that point.
