Creating Cumulated Dimension Systems

This task will show you how to create a cumulated dimension system on a view.
Open the Brackets_views03.CATDrawing document.
  1. Click Cumulated Dimensions in the Dimensioning toolbar (Dimensions sub-toolbar).

  2. Click a first point on the view.

  3. Click a second point on the view.
    You just created a first dimension within the cumulated dimension system.

  4. Click a third point on the view.

    You now created a second cumulated dimension in the system. You can create as many cumulated dimensions as desired.

    Note that if you move one dimension line as you create a cumulated dimension, all the lines will move accordingly. In the same way, clicking on one dimension line highlights all the lines, thus showing that the whole system is selected.
  5. Click in the free space to end the cumulated dimension system creation.

  • The Cumulated Dimension System works for distance and angle dimensions only.
