Creating Curvature Radius Dimensions

This task will show you how to create and modify a curvature radius dimension. A curvature radius dimension lets you know the curvature radius at a given point on a curve (spline, ellipse, etc.).
Create a spline.


  1. Select Dimension in the Dimensioning toolbar.

  2. Move the cursor over the spline. You can notice that the cursor changes to indicate that you are going to create a dimension on a spline.

  3. On the spline, click the point where you want to create the curvature radius dimension. A preview of the curvature radius dimension is displayed.

  4. Click to validate the dimension creation.

  5. Move the dimension over the spline to modify the dimension.
