In this video, Shaun Bryant demonstrates how to manage dimension styles in the CAD drawing.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our…04_OFFICE_ReceptionArea drawing…and another thing that we're going to consider now…is not the dimension layer but the dimension style.…Now you can see that we've got numerous dimensions…on the CAD drawing before we being it into Revit…and they're obviously using a particular dimension style.…So what we need to do is make sure we lose…all the dimension styles that we don't actually need.…Now, I can select any dimension, like so,…right click on it, and go to properties,…and it will tell me that it's using a particular dim style.…
There it is there, Diagonal 2.5 millimeter Arial.…So it's using that particular dim style.…Now, what I'm going to is close the properties palette…and hit escape to deselect that dimension.…I'm going to make sure that…A-ANNO-DIMS is my current layer, which it is.…I'm going to go to layer properties,…and like we've done in previous videos,…I'm going to click on any layer by right clicking,…and select all on the shortcut menu…and then click on the sun symbol…
