Dimensioning to Mold Line (Base Wall only)

It is often desirable to dimension sheet metal walls to the mold line (intersection of the flat wall extensions). You can accomplish this dimensioning scheme by adding appropriate sketcher centerlines and point while creating the base wall section. Dimensions can then be created to the sketcher point, instead of the tangent points on the arc as shown in the following illustration.
