Sometimes it is necessary to create a diameter dimension with angled
extensions lines in order to clear other local dimensions. NX does not
currently offer a direct way to accomplish this for diameter dimensions.
In the Dimension Style dialog you will find the Line/Arrow tab, "F" field.
The parameter "F" controls the Extension line angle. Unfortunately this angle
only applies to Vertical and Horizontal dimensions.
This means that it will not change the extension line angle for a Diameter
dimension. Therefor the solution is to create the dimension as a vertical or
horizontal dimension and use a "DIA" callout or diameter symbol in the
appended text fields, while setting the required value for F in the Dimension
Style dialog for that dimension.
To access the Dimension Style dialog while creating the dimension select the
attachment points for the vertical or horizontal dimension and before placing
it use MB3 --> Style and then select the Line/Arrow tab to set the "F" angle.
