QDIM (Command)

Creates a series of dimensions quickly from selected objects.

Find

This command is particularly useful for creating a series of baseline or continued
dimensions, or for dimensioning a series of circles and arcs.

The following prompts are displayed.

Select geometry to dimension
Selects objects to dimension or dimensions to edit.

Specify dimension line position
Specifies the dimension line position.

Continuous

Creates a series of continued dimensions, in which linear dimension lines are all
located end-to-end along the same line.

Staggered

Creates a series of staggered dimensions, in which linear dimension lines are offset
from each other by a constant increment.

Baseline

Creates a series of baseline dimensions, in which linear dimensions share a common
extension line.

Ordinate

Creates a series of ordinate dimensions, in which features are annotated with a single
extension line together with either an X or Y value. measured relative to a datum
point.

Radius

Creates a series of radial dimensions, in which the radius values of selected arcs
and circles are displayed.

Diameter

Creates a series of diameter dimensions, in which the diameter values of selected
arcs and circles are displayed.

Datum Point

Sets a new datum point for baseline and ordinate dimensions.

Edit

Removes selected point locations from consideration before dimensions are generated.

Settings

Sets the object snap priority for specifying extension line origin points, either
intersections or endpoints.
