AutoCAD: Annotate-Dimension Dimensioning Part 1

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 telling the size and job details, namely the Annotate:Dimension tool group.

FIGURE 1

In the Dimension group, there are also separate tools for dimensioning include :

1.Linear– defines dimensions in a straight line (both vertically and horizontally).

2.Aligned– defines 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 the starting point.

To understanding, See the FIGURE 3 showing different dimensions below.
