Because AutoCAD is a vector program (Vector) is mainly used for technical drawing. It is therefore important to tell the size of the workpiece and there is a group of tools specifically for measure the size and entity details, namely the tool group.

**Annotate:Dimension**

In the Dimension group there are also tools that are separated according to the size used. Types include

** 1 Linear** Defines dimensions in a straight line (both **vertically** and **horizontally**).

**2** **Aligned** tells dimensions parallel to the workpiece in all planes.

**3 Angular** tells us the size of the angle in degrees between two objects.

**4** **Arc** Length tells the length of the arc (Arc) from the end of the arc.

**5** **Radius** indicates the radius of a circle. or part of a circle

**6** **Diameter** tells the diameter of a circle. or part of a circle

**7** **Jogged** tells a scaled down version. used in such cases The radial line is very far from the workpiece.

**8** **Ordinate** sizing based on a defined starting point.

For understanding See the **figure 3** showing different dimensions below.

In the next chapter, we’ll look at how to use Dimension. Let’s follow cadcoms.com for more content.
