Processes, Initiatives, and Best Practices

Benefits and Description

The perpendicular edge is projected to the annotation plane as a point. Therefore, the edge reference is treated as a point reference by the dimension. This makes it possible to capture design intent and comply with standards regarding response highlighting for dimension annotations in 3D.
