Dimensioning

There are feature classes for the aligned and orthogonal dimensions for the documentation of dimensioning. For each dimension, the lines, points and labels are managed in the associated feature classes. How a dimension is entered in the illustration is described in “Documenting dimensioning”.

Aligned dimensioning

The objects of an aligned dimensioning are managed in this form.
