Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video DIM command, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- In newer versions of AutoCAD,…you have this lovely new command,…just literally called the "Dimension Command".…And the actual command, if you just type "dim",…d-i-m, and enter, there's the command there,…and obviously the dynamic input is prompting me now…to select the objects I want to dimension.…I'll just hit escape there just to deselect.…Now, the dimension command, or the dim command,…is available on the home tab on the ribbon,…right here, in the annotation panel.…There it is there, the dimension command.…And as you can see, it's called the "dim command'.…
I can also get to it via the annotate tab on the ribbon,…and it's just here.…There's the dim command there as well.…What it allows you to do is it allows you…just to hover over an object,…AutoCAD recognizes that object,…and applies the appropriate dimension type.…So you'll notice, we're still in the…04_Dimensioning.dwg drawing, which hopefully…you've been using and following along and saving…in this particular chapter of the course.…Now, I'm going to use the dimension command,…
