Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Special dimensions, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- There are a few other dimension tools…that I want to go over.…If we click, and hold on the Linear dimension tool,…we can see a few other options,…including Angular and Circular dimensions.…I'm going to click Angular.…And, unlike other Linear tools,…we're asked to pick the two lines that make…the angle we want to dimension.…In this case, here and here.…As I drag out, we can see that…depending on where I place the dimension,…depends on which angle AutoCAD will dimension for us.…I'm going to place the dimension here, and click.…
Now let's dimension my holes, here.…I'll go back over to Linear tool,…and I'm going to grab the diameter, here.…Click, and I can drag out and place my leader.…The Radius tool works the same way.…One other tool I want to mention,…is the Break dimension tool.…This allows me to break overlapping dimension lines,…which is not good drafting practice.…I'm going to select the tool, here,…and I want to break these two crossing dimensions.…
I'll select the dimension that I want to place the gap in,…
