CATIA V4 Dimension to points in profile.

CATIA V4 Dimension to points in profile.


I was wondering if it's possible to dimension to points in V4 in profiles using Param3d. I know that points do not get added to profiles when creating them. Is it possible to make a point that is associated to the end of a line that can be chosen for dimensioning like a spline point if that can be made on a line.

Do I need to create extra Horizontal and Vertical lines that I can demension to that are created starting from the end of a profile line.

Are my attempts futile or is it possible to do what I'm looking for. I've tried Get point from on the fly buid but it does not seem to attach parametrically and follow changes.
