DimensionSet

Win32 and 64, English

Richard Stima
DimensionSet controls and modifies dimensions which create one continuous set of dimensions as one object. Insert or Delete point, Move dimension set and more.

General Usage Instructions

DimensionSet has the following commands:

  1. DIMSETINSERT: To insert a new point into dimension set.
  2. DIMSETDELETE: To delete point from dimension set.
  3. DIMSETMOVE: To move base line of dimension set. 
  4. DIMSETEXTEND: Modifies length of dimension extension lines.
  5. DIMSETPOINTPROP: Modifies dimension extension line and symbol Point. 
  6. DIMSETSELECT: Select dimension set 

 

The criteria when two dimensions are considered as part of dimension set are: 

  1. Base line end point is identical
  2. Base line angle is identical
  3. Dimensions are on the same layer

Commands

Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description

DIMSETEXTEND

Modifies length of dimension extension lines. There are two options: Synchronize: If two dimensions have same extension line locations but with different length you can synchronize their length. Specify shorter or longer extension line to follow. Extend: You can specify new length of extension line. Pick extension line to modify or eventually you can modify more points by crossing line. Pick first point by holding CTRL and then pick second point.

DIMSETSELECT

Add dimension set into Autodesk® AutoCAD® selection set. You can use then other AutoCAD command to manipulate dimension set as one object (for example DELETE, MOVE etc.)

DIMSETMOVE

Move base line of dimension set. Select one dimension of dimension set and pick a new position of base line.

DIMSETDELETE

Delete point from dimension set. Select one dimension of dimension set and pick point to be deleted. Eventually you can delete more points by crossing line. Pick first point by holding CTRL and then pick second point.

DIMSETPOINTPROP

Modifies dimension extension line visibility and dimension symbol. You can show or hide extension line and change dimension symbol at selected one or multiple points within dimension set.

DIMSETINSERT

Insert a new point into dimension set. Select one dimension of dimension set and pick a new point.

DIMSETSETTINGS

You can set here how existing or new dimensions are modified and tolerance for searching of continuous dimension set.

Installation/Uninstallation

The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the app/plug-in. To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button. OR, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8/8.1/10) and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information

Two dimensions are considered to be part of the dimension set when they have identical base line points (point where is dimension symbol). The default searching tolerance is set to 0.0001 which works in the most situations. However if the dimensions are too far from World Coordinate System 0, 0, 0 (for example 123456000, 1234567000) AutoCAD then loses calculation precision. This can happen when you work in millimeters in the real coordinate system. In this case change tolerance to 0.1 in Setting dialog window or enter DIMSETTOLERANCE.
