Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a dimension style, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Instructor] So now we're looking at…developing a dimension style to dimension…accurately in our drawings as well.…So we're staying in the 04_dimensioning.dwg file,…we've got our DIMS layer in there already,…and it's the current drafting layer,…so if we place any dimensions they'll go on that DIMS layer.…But what's really cool is if I go to the Annotate tab,…you'll notice in the Dimensions panel,…even when I am dimensioning,…I've got a Dimension override here, Dim Layer Override.…
So I can go and pick the DIMS layer anyway,…and it will automatically put the dimensions…on the DIMS layer even if the current drafting layer…is something totally different.…So, dimension style is what we need to look at.…So, to set up a dimension style,…I can click on the little arrow here,…in the Dimensions panel in the Annotate tab,…or I can go to the Home tab on the ribbon,…go to the Annotation fly-out here,…and there's my dimensions styles there.…So if I click there, that brings up…the dimension style manager.…Now you'll notice I've got a non annotative…
