Set a new dimension start point

Set a new dimension start point

You can select a new start point for running dimensions (dimensions that start from a common start point).

  1. Select an existing dimension in a drawing.
  2. On the Dimensioning tab, click Set start point.
  3. Select the new start point.

    Tekla Structures automatically updates the dimensions.


You can use this command to swap the running dimensions start point to the opposite end of the member.

When you use the US absolute dimension type, Tekla Structures draws a new RD symbol (Running Dimension) at the new zero point and updates the dimensions according to the new start point.
