When a dimension is modified, all the dimensions along that direction
are also modified.
The dimensions are computed from the current
axis system - the part default or the selected one to the extreme end of
The dimensions by default are displayed in the
two most seen directions.
If the view point is changed, then the
displayed dimensions could change.
The deformations are not commutative. If you change the dimension
and again go back to the original dimension, then you may not get
the exact same shape.
This function works with a precision lower than 0.1 mm. If the
precision level exceeds this limit a warning message is displayed.
You can undo the command if you
are not satisfied with the dimension modification.
You can define an axis system
during the command using the compass and the dimensions are recomputed from the axis.
Before you click the
command, you can select an
already existing axis system,
which is used as reference to display the dimension from this axis. Any
modification in the dimension is in reference with this axis.
For instance, select the axis system
