Negative length in sketch NX7.5.5?

spacely

New member
Hi all,

I have dimensioned a line to be normal to a spline, with a length. But sometimes, I need the line to flip to the other side of the spline, and negative length doesn't do it. Is there a simple way I am missing?

Thanks you in advance,
Dave

There is a command in the dimension toolbar called Alternate Solution that allows you to flip the dimension to the other direction. It's not turned on by default so you will need to add it to the toolbar.
