Sketcher dimensioning is very important because it directly reflects our 3D model in Pro/E. Most of the geometries are pretty easy and straightforward, however some require special techniques. Below are 5 special case dimensioning techniques in ProE sketcher.

A. Diameter dimension in revolve feature (instead of linear type)

To create the diameter type dimension in sketch, select (LMB)
