Rotated Dimension  Topic is solved

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Rotated Dimension

Postby pipingguy » Sat Feb 05, 2022 1:53 pm

I wish we had a rotated dimension tool like AutoCAD. As far as I can tell, the only workaround is to use the protractor in SKP to determine the angle of the dimension line relative to the objects, then switch to LO, set the linear dim as usual, rotate it and finally re-afix the points to the objects.

It can be done in LayOut.

At least in recent versions of LayOut. What version are you using? Your profile is incomplete.

in such cases, I use a line that helps me to set the size (then the line can be deleted)

It's pretty simple in layout.

I use version 21. Thank you for the solutions. All that's left to do is adjust the left side extension line's end point to provide a gap.
