The basic types of dimensioning are aligned, linear, angular, radius, diameter, and arc length.

Super Dimension #


Create multiple types of dimensions within a single command session.
When you hover over an object for dimensioning, the DIM command automatically previews a suitable dimension type to use. Select objects, lines, or points to dimension and click anywhere in the drawing area to draw the dimension.
The supported dimension types range from vertical, horizontal, aligned, and rotated linear dimensions, to angular dimensions, to radius, diameter, jogged radius, and arc length dimensions, to baseline and continued dimensions.
• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Super dimension”
• Press enter and then select the dimension entity
Select objects
Automatically selects an applicable dimension type for the objects you select and displays the prompts corresponding to that dimension type.
• Specify dimension position

Quick Dimension #


Create a series of dimensions quickly from selected objects.


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Quick dimension”
• select the object to quick dimension

Dimension merge #

• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Dimension merge”
• select the dimension lines to merge


Quick Dimension with baseline #


Create a linear, angular, or ordinate dimension from the baseline of the previous or selected dimension.


•Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Quick dimension with baseline”
• select the object to quick dimension

Aligned Dimension #


Create a linear dimension that is aligned with the origin points of the extension lines.

• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Aligned”
• Specify the first point of dimension.
• Specify the second point of dimension.
• Specify dimension position.

Linear Dimension #

Creates a linear dimension with a horizontal, vertical, or rotated dimension line


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Linear”
• Specify the first point of dimension.
• Specify the second point of dimension.
• Specify dimension position.

Angular Dimension #

Angular dimensions measure the angle between two selected geometric objects or three points.


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Angular”
• Specify the first point of dimension.
• Specify the second point of dimension.
• Specify dimension position.

Radius Dimension #

Measures the radius of a selected circle or arc and displays the dimension text with a radius symbol in front of it. You can use grips to reposition the resulting radius dimension easily.


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Radius”
• Specify the arc/circle.
• Specify dimension position.

Diameter Dimension #

Measures the diameter of a selected circle or arc, and displays the dimension text with a diameter symbol in front of it. You can use grips to easily reposition the resulting diameter dimension.


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Diameter”
• Specify the arc/circle.
• Specify dimension position.

Arc Length Dimension #


Arc length dimensions measure the distance along an arc or polyline arc segment.


• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Dim arc length”
• Specify the arc/circle entity.
• Specify dimension position.

Chamfer Dimension #

Ordinate dimension #

• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Ordinate dimension”
• Specify the point to dim
• Specify second point

Ordinate XY dimension #

• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “Ordinate XY dimension”
• Specify the point to dim
• Specify second point

Dimension alignment #

Dimension alignment is only valid for rotated dimension and align dimension.
• Click Menu “Dimension”, and then choose “dimension alignment”
• Select dim to alignment
• Specify align point
