Horiz and Vert Center Line give axles of the middle of the part.
Could you allow to dimension a part from his origin instead his middle?
Thanks

Not sure how to determine the origin for an arbitrary object, but once the origin is known, you could do this:

Code: Select all

>>> origin = App.Vector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0)
>>> v = App.ActiveDocument.View
>>> v.makeCosmeticVertex3d(origin)

Another issue: Change in the view parameters the text size of a WeldSymbol and you won't see the change.
