See how to place linear dimensions for continuous and stacked dimension types.
- [Instructor] This exercise will demonstrate…how to use the linear dimension commands.…Continue using the file for chapter three…working with dimensions.dgn…and using view groups select the linear one model.…First, let me select the dimension linear command here.…This command is used to dimension the straight distance…between or along elements.…The methods available using this command…are linear size, linear stacked, and linear single.…
We will start by selecting the linear size method…to create a single dimension…along the bottom of the building element.…The results of this simple dimension is identical…to the dimension results using the dimension element command…discussed earlier in this chapter.…Now let's create a continuous string of linear dimensions…across the top of the building element.…The dim offset setting allows you to control the distance…that the dimension line is offset from the snap points.…
I will turn on the dimension offset setting…and set it to 25 feet.…Now when I place the linear dimensions…
