|TechDraw LengthDimension, TechDraw HorizontalDimension|
The Vertical Dimension tool adds a vertical dimension to a View. The dimension may be between two vertices, the length of one edge or the vertical 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 vertically
- 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.
