Drawing dimension lines

You can draw dimension lines to indicate the size, length, distance, or other measurements related to objects in a drawing. Dimension lines and the measurements shown on the lines change with the objects they are applied to.

Www Dimension Guide

Dimension lines can show the sizes of parts of an object.

Dimension lines can show the sizes of parts of an object.

There are several types of dimension lines available in the application: • vertical or horizontal dimension lines — measure the vertical (along the y-axis) or horizontal (along the x-axis) distance between any two nodes

• parallel dimension lines — measure the actual distance between two nodes

• angular dimension lines — measure angles

• segment dimension lines — measure the linear distance between the end nodes of a segment or the linear distance between the two most distant nodes in multiple segments. You can also measure selected successive segments.

• radial or diameter dimension lines — measure the radius or diameter of a circle or a partial circle

You can set how dimension text and lines are displayed. For more information about formatting lines, see "Formatting lines and outlines" on page 73.
