Settings

When clicked, which dimension type is active (inner, outer, intersection etc.) opens the dimension settings dialog where the parameters related to that dimension are found.

Usage Steps

  • Click the Angle Dimension icon in the ribbon menu .

  • Two objects that intersect or can intersect are required.

  • Click the 1st and 2nd object respectively.

  • The shape of the cursor will revert to the shape of the angular measure. Decide the position of the angle by dragging the mouse.

  • Finish the dimensioning process by clicking the left button.

Usage step

Selecting the 1st object to be dimensioned

Selecting the 2nd object to be dimensioned

Specifications

Base units

One of the selections is activated by clicking the left mouse button on the job.

Degree : If marked, the unit of knowledge writing will be degrees.
Radian : If checked, the unit of information text will be radians.
Grad : If checked, the unit of callout will be grad.

Digit count

It determines how many digits will be shown after the comma. The wanted number is selected from the list. For example, if 2 is selected, units will be shown as two digits after the comma. If 0 is selected, units will not be shown after the comma.

Rounding interval

Determines the rounding range of the dimension to be made in degrees, radians or grad. If no rounding is selected, the dimensioning is done at exact value. As the range gets larger, the dimensioning is rounded up to the selected range.
