See how to place linear dimensions for multiple elements and how to place one-sided, symmetrical, and chamfer dimensions.
- [Instructor] This exercise will demonstrate…how to use some additional linear commands…that do not appear using the…out of the box dimension tool box.…Continue using the file for chapter three,…Working with Dimension.dgn…and using view groups, select the Linear 3 model.…I need to turn on the additional linear dimension toolbox.…Using the pull down menu,…select Tools, Dimensions, Linear Dimensions,…and Open as a Toolbox.…This toolbox contains some of the more obscure…linear dimension commands,…but I know that I use some of these…so I wanted to make sure everyone knew they existed.…
The first command I want to discuss…is the Dimension Size Perpendicular command.…Use the Dimension Size Perpendicular command…to dimension the perpendicular distance…between two elements…and snap to the endpoints between the two buildings…and left click to define the dimension location.…The next command is Dimension Symmetrical.…The Dimension Symmetrical command…is used to create linear dimensions…by specifying data points…that symmetric to a defined center line.…
