Creating a Intersection Dimension
Intersection dimension is generally used for dimension between axes. However, it can be used with reference to axes and lines wherever appropriate.
Intersection dimensions are not dependent on objects. If the spacing of the respective axis or line is changed, they do not update themselves. In such a case, the dimensions should be rearranged by the user.

Places the section dimension on the left.
Places the section dimension on the right.
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.
Click the Intersection Dimension icon in the ribbon menu .
With the left mouse button, select the axis or lines between which you will be dimensioned.
Click the right mouse button. If you want, you can determine the points you want to be reference at this stage.
Complete the selection process by clicking the right mouse button.
Determine the dimension line that intersects the marked line or axises by clicking two points with the left mouse button.
Intersection dimension will be done on the specified line.
Choosing the axis or lines between which to be measured
Determination of optional reference points

Location of Intersection Dimension Settings Dialog
Intersection Dimension Command Settings
After running the intersection dimension command, you can access it by clicking the Settings icon in the dimension assistant toolbar that appears on the screen.
Intersection Dimension Object Settings
Select the free dimension you want to enter its settings and click the Properties row from the menu that opens by clicking the right button of the mouse.
Dimension Settings - Dimension Settings Tab
The font height of the dimensions is entered.
The distance of the dimension text from the objects is entered.
The distance of the dimension text to the dimension line is entered.
The position of the dimension text relative to the dimension line is selected.
When the button is clicked, the "Font Settings" dialog appears. Font of information text can be set here.
The distance from the dimensioning lines to each other is determined.
The size of the cross separators is entered in the dimension lines.
Upper marker size of the dimension line is entered.
The bottom marker size of the dimension line is entered.
How long the dimension line will continue after the left and right end reference points is entered.
The distance of the dimension line from the curved objects taken as reference by the bottom separator is entered.
Display type of dimension lines is selected.
Sets the color of the dimension text. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the window that opens.
Sets the color of the dimension lines. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the window that opens.
Sets the color of the measure markers. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the window that opens.
The actual length values written on the dimension line are multiplied with the value written here and the value found at the result of multiplication is used as the measurement value. For example, the dimension line values are 120, 200, 350. If 2 is written to the scale value, the lengths of 120, 200, 250 will be written as 240, 400, 700 in the dimension line.
One of the two marker types that can be used in dimension is selected.
Dimension Lines Section
It gives the total length of all lines.
Dimension Settings - Units Tab
One of the selections is activated by clicking the left mouse button on the job.
Meter : If checked, the unit of information text will be meters.
It determines how many digits will be shown after the comma. The desired 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.
It determines the precision of the dimension to be made in fractional inch format. In the list, there are options with a sensitivity of 1/2, ¼, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/34. If "no fraction" is selected, units will appear without fractions.
It determines the rounding range of the measurement to be made in meters, centimeters or millimeters. 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.
Show zero unit
If it is not checked, it does not show the zero and point on the left in dimensioning. For example, it measures 0.20 as 20. If marked, the value 0.20 is scaled as 0.20.
Small fraction text
When fractional inch format is selected, determines the fractional part to display in upper / lower case. If it is checked, the fraction is slightly above the integer and small, if not, the fraction is shown the same size next to the integer.
Show zero foot
Determines whether 0 is displayed in the 0-foot gauge (less than 1 foot gauge). For example, if it is not checked, it will show a measure of 0 '- 15 "as -15". If marked, it shows as 0'-15 ".
Show zero inch on 0-1 inch range
For example, a dimension inch with a value of 8'-0 1/6 "is in the range 0-1. If the option is not ticked, the value 8'-0 1/6" will be displayed as 8'-. In other words, inch values in the 0-1 range will not be displayed.
Show absolute zero inch
Determines whether to show zero inches in the dimension value where inches is absolute zero. For example, a dimension of exactly 10 'will be displayed as 10'-0 "if this option is selected. If not checked, it will be displayed as 10" -.
