Disclaimer: The dimension tool has been overhauled and is kind of “new”
The DIM tool (as shown below) is a one-stop-shop for most of your dimensions.
You simply launch the tool and start selecting objects or if your OSNAPS are on, you start picking points and it will recognize if you are trying to create aligned or linear dimensions.
- Also shown above is the common dimensions for arcs and circles.
- Arcs are generally dimensioned with the “R” radius marking.
- Circles are generally dimensioned with the ∅ diameter symbol
Shown below – selecting 2 points and then placing the dimensions are either aligned or linear.
