This is a tip that I just saw from Lynn Allen’s blog [found here]and thought that I would share it here as well.
Imagine trying to dimension something that doesn’t have parallel or perpendicular pick points. So when you pick the 2 points for the dimension, it will normally create the dimension so that it is perpendicular to those 2 points.
With the command DIMROTATED you can now specify the angle that you want the dimension to be perpendicular to.
- DIMROTATED <enter>
- Specify the angle that you want the dimension to be perpendicular to by picking 2 points
- Pick the 2 points to start the dimension
- Place the dimension
