Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Dimensions, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- So Chapter 11-04 we're looking at dimensions in this one.…And we're concentrating on positioning dimensions here.…And then we'll look at adjusting them in the next video.…So dimension tool is this one.…You've got linear and angular.…You also need this thing, the Dimension Style Tray.…So that's going to sit down there.…This doesn't spring in to life until you click on this.…You can't sort of pre-format your dimensions…until you've clicked on this tool.…Cursor changes to the pencil with the dimension symbol…next to it and then we get to play with these buttons.…
So above, in line with the dimension line, and below it…and this is the orientation of the font,…or the numbers on the dimension line.…This is whether you display units or not.…And I'm currently set to decimal, millimeters.…But I could be architectural.…Hit no option with the architectural, it's got to be inches.…And then position down to 1/64".…Engineering.…Feet.…Fractional.…Feet.…
So it's only the decimal that gives me the option to change…to imperial or metric units.…
