About Dimensioning

Dimensioning is the process of adding measurement annotation to a drawing.

You can create dimensions for a variety of object types in many orientations. The
basic types of dimensioning are

  • Linear
  • Radial (radius, diameter, and jogged)
  • Angular
  • Ordinate
  • Arc Length

Linear dimensions can be horizontal, vertical, aligned, rotated, baseline, or continued
(chained). Some examples are shown in the illustration.

The DIM command automatically recognizes objects and defaults to appropriate dimension
type. By hovering on objects, lines, or points, you can place linear, angular, radial,
diameter, baseline, and continued dimensions. With the DIM command, you can create
multiple dimensions with minimal input, resulting in instant groups of appropriately
spaced ordinate, parallel, or symmetrical dimensions. The dimensions appear on the
appropriate layers, as specified in the command.

With more than 70 dimensioning-oriented settings in the Dimension Styles Manager,
you can control nearly every aspect of the appearance of dimensions. For example,
you can set the precise gap between the extension lines and the object being dimensioned.
All these settings can be saved as one or more dimension styles. If you save your dimension styles in a drawing template (dwt) file, they will be
available each time you start a new drawing.

NOTE:To simplify drawing organization and dimension scaling, it is recommended that you
create dimensions on layouts rather than in model space.
