Hello, is it possible to dimension a bending part in the 3d view and print out this area?

How do I measure 11.22 in the drawing?
Do I have to make a second sketch which I put over the bending part and transfer the line from the second sketch back to the first sketch? So I have a guide for the dimensioning?

Is not that easier?

    are you trying to size the model using 11.221 as your input? or are you trying to show 11.221 on your paper drawing?

    Thank you. It can be so easy if you know how ;)

    For sure!
    Importing sketches in drawings that are paramtricaly linked to the model is still very new to Onshape.
    This is a just in time addition for you apparently :)
