In this video, Shaun Bryant demonstrates how to manage the dimension layers in the CAD drawing.
- [Voiceover] We're starting another chapter now…with our CAD file, where we're looking at…annotations and dimensions,…and what we need, by way of annotation and dimensions,…when we take the CAD drawing into REVIT.…Now, we've got a new drawing for the chapter,…it's 04 underscore office reception area dot dwg.…You can see it at the top of the screen there.…Again, you can download it from the website…to follow along with the videos.…And, as you go through each video in the chapter,…just save the drawing, so that you end up…with the finished article at the end of the chapter.…
Now, we're going to look, first of all, at the dimension layer.…Now, it may be that you've got a number of dimension layers…in your AutoCAD drawing, so let's have a look at that.…We'll go to the home tab on the ribbon first…and jump into the layer properties.…And you'll notice, we're in and out of the layer properties…quite a lot in this particular course.…That's because a lot of the properties reside…for all of the elements in your CAD drawing.…
