Centerline on drawing????

Centerline on drawing????

Working with Wildfire build 490 and Intralink 3.3

How do I get a centerline thrtough the middle of a part in a drawing view? For the life of me I cannot remember how I used to do this. I have a center datum plane in the part but I cannot find anyway to sketch an entity (centerline) that is on this center datum plane. I found a way to sketch a 2D datum but then it shows as a datum plane and not as a centerline. Anyone know a good way to do this?

Re: Centerline on drawing????

Had several people tell me the same thing. Works very well:

"I will create a datum axis in the model then show it in the drawing. You can attach an "CL" symbol/note to the view, also.
Good luck."

Thanks for the help!
