Text Section

The text height of the dimensions is entered.

The distance of the dimension texts from the objects is entered.

The distance of the dimension texts from the dimension line is entered.

The position of the dimension texts according to the dimension line is selected.

When the button is clicked, the “Font Settings” dialog appears. Here you can set the font of the info text.

Distances Section

Line displacement

The distance between the dimension lines is determined.

In the dimension lines, the size of the cross braces is entered.

Enter the upper separator size of the dimension line.

The lower separator size of the dimension line is entered.

Enter how long the dimension line will continue after the left and right end reference points.

Colors Section

Sets the color of the dimension texts. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the pop-up window.

Sets the color of the dimension lines. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the pop-up window.

Sets the color of the dimension markers. When the color box is clicked, the appropriate color is selected from the pop-up window.

Value scale

The actual length values ​​written on the dimension line are multiplied with the value written here and the value found as a result of the multiplication is used as the measurement value. For example, dimension line values ​​are 120, 200, 350. If 2 is written to the scale value, the lengths 120, 200, 250 will be written as 240, 400, 700 on the dimension line.

Dimension Settings - Units Tab

Specifications

Basic units

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.
Centimeter : If checked, the unit of the callout will be centimeter.
Millimeter : If checked, the unit of callout will be millimeter.
Feet and fractional inches : If checked, the unit of callout is feet and fractional inches. The unit format is, for example, 15 '-10 3/4 ".
Feet and decimal-digit inches : If checked, the unit of callout is feet and decimal-digit inches. Unit format is, for example, 15' -10.7".
Decimal place fit: If checked, the unit of callout will be decimal place fit. The unit format is for example 15.89 '.
Fractional inch: If checked, callout unit will be fractional inch. The unit format is, for example, 1901/2 ".
Inch with decimal places : If checked, the unit of callout is inches with decimal places. The unit format is for example 190.7".

Digit count

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.

Fractions

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.

Rounding interval

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" -.

Usage Steps

  • Enter the section dimension command.

  • Create the first point of the section dimension line by clicking the left mouse button.

  • End your section dimension line by clicking the left mouse button at the point where the dimensioning will end.

  • The section dimension will be created automatically.
