How can I dimension hole locations on a flattened cylinder?

jeremy_lee540jeremy_lee540 Member Posts: 3 PRO
I have a cylindrical extruded sheet metal part with various thru holes that I am trying to dimension. Unfortunately, once the part is laid flat the round openings aren't round anymore and the dimension tool will not snap to any of the mid points. I expected that I would have to call out the diameters with a just an arrow and note, which is fine, but I can't figure out how to call out their locations. Any ideas?

The first part in questions is T18 cryoshield 2 in the linked document.

    Thanks Neil, I tried finishing the model as a last resort when I couldn't figure it out ;) All set now.
