parallel dimension example

We need a way to adjust the length of the extension lines on a parallel dimension.

AutoCad does this by rotating a linear dimension.

Best regards,

Sam Taylor

Also needed is a way to do running dimensions at an angle as shown in the attached drawing.

Thanks,

Sam

A few more items that would be very nice.

1. Adjustable vertex points in case you click a dimension to the wrong point. You could grab the vertex point and relocate it to the right point.

2. The ability to toggle any dimension from fractions to decimals or vice versa without switching to a different standard style.

3. The ability to create or set a standard style by clicking on the dimension.

4. The ability for leaders to have multiple arrows.

5. Make the angle dimensions to be able to toggle as **shown in the attached drawing,** and fix the extension lines on the angle dimensions.

6. The ability to toggle one of the extension lines on/off and toggle them to be a centerline or continuous line.

7. The ability to rotate dimension text.

8. Really awesome, and really important, to be able to have dimensions change in a viewport when the 3d model is changed.
(This is important when you have multiple parts that are different lengths. In production, it is very time consuming if you have to redo dimensions every time you modify your part. I suppose I could put the dimensions in the model space. I'LL try that.) But still, what is the point of dimensioning on the viewport if it doesn't change when the model is changed. Just saying. I am sure the coding for that must be complicated.

Thanks,

Sam Taylor
