5.11.3.1.  Mandatory parameters

[Note] Note

When editing parameters at first select the desired dimensioning.

Each dimensioning must contain the following parameters:

  • ID

    ID is only required, if a dimensioning serves as Base dimension for a chain dimensioning.

  • Description

    The description is shown in the above listing. Initially a description is automatically given, when creating a new dimensioning, which can be adjusted as desired.

  • Type

    When creating a new dimensioning, HORIZONTAL is displayed initially. In the list field, adjust the selection to RADIAL. You can change the type anytime.

    [Note] Note

    The parameter fields are not updated until you have clicked Save changes .

  • Views

    At the desired 2D views, where the dimensioning shall be displayed, activate the checkbox.

    In the list field, check the desired views.

    In the list field, check the desired views.

    Views which contain a dimensioning, can be recognized in the 3D toolbar, by a respective icon with dimensioning lines .

  • Connection point

    Select a Connection point as center of the circle of the radial dimensioning.

    (The measuring distance [see next point] determines, where the arrow is visibly inserted.

    1. In the 3D view, click on the desired connection point.

      -> This is marked in red now.

    2. Click into the input field of the point.

    3. Enter the name of the point via Ctrl+V from the clipboard into the input field.

      Insert "Connection point" via Ctrl+V

  • Measuring distance

    Measuring distance is the aiming point of the arrowhead (normally the circle radius, because otherwise the arrowhead would have no real focus).

    Specify a fixed value or better a variable.
