Inventor – Project an Implied Intersection for a Drawing Dimension

Inventor users, have you ever wondered how to create a dimension to the imaginary point at which two drawing lines would meet?
Sometimes you need to draw a dimension starting or finishing at the intersection between two projected surfaces each side of a sheet metal bend.

Inventor’s drawing environment includes a great tool to achieve this. Watch the video below for a demo.
