Dimension Baseline

Toolbox Icon:


Draws dimensions using several points along a baseline. Points are set for each measurement position. The distance measured is the vertical or horizontal distance to the measurement points.

Each distance is measured from the first point.

Point 1-n: Points to be measured

Point n+1: Location for dimension information The Dimension Baseline window allows you to determine whether the horizontal or vertical distance will be measured.


First set a point for the base measurement point. Then set points for the other measurement points. Finally set a point for the location of the dimension text. Click the middle mouse button or press Enter. The dimension is drawn using the points.


NOTE: The other options available in this command are the same ones available in the Dimension command. You can also set dimension parameters globally in the program Options.
