TechDraw Dimension Horizontal
|TechDraw → Dimension Horizontal|
|Introduced in version|
|TechDraw Dimension Length, TechDraw Dimension Vertical|
The Dimension Horizontal tool adds a horizontal dimension to a View. The dimension may be between two vertices, the length of one edge or the horizontal distance between 2 edges. The distance will initially be the projected distance (ie as shown on the drawing), but this may be changed to the actual 3D distance using thetool.
Length dimension taken from two arbitrary nodes of the view; the distance is measured horizontally
- Select the points or edge which define your measurement.
- Press the button
- A dimension will be added to the View. The dimension may be dragged to the desired position.
- If needed, add tolerances as described in this page.
Dimension objects are vulnerable to "topological naming" issues. See the information in the TechDraw Dimension Length tool for more information.
This object has the same properties as the TechDraw Dimension Length tool. See that tool for details.
