Here are some examples of added manual dimensions.

Command

Example

Add parallel dimension

Shows the edge points picked for defining the direction for the parallel dimension line.

Shows the dimension points picked.

Same part as before, now dimensioned with Add perpendicular dimension

Shows the edge points picked for defining the direction for the perpendicular dimension line.

Shows the dimension points picked.

Add curved dimension with orthogonal reference lines

The dimension text on the line is a distance value.

If the ends of a curved beam or polybeam have been cut or fitted, the points at the ends of the beam do not necessarily lie on the true curve of the beam. This is because curved beams are created with straight segments. The points are indicated with

To avoid creating incorrect curved dimensions, pick the three points defining the arc using three of the points indicated with

Use end point snap.

Add curved dimension with radial reference lines

Curved set to Distance.

The dimension text on the line is a distance value.

Add curved dimension with radial reference lines

Curved set to Angle.

The dimension text on the line is an angle value.

Add angular dimension

Angle set to Degrees at angle vertex

Add angular dimension

Angle set to Degrees on side
