Section view dimensions

Section view dimensions

Win64, English

Civil Tools
An app that creates dimension lines within the section view based on the selected corridor and codes.

General Usage Instructions

This app creates dimension lines in a way that is familiar to all design and construction participants. Considering the selected corridor and the codes of that corridor, dimension lines are created on the selected section views. It is possible to measure the distance from any alignment that has profile as well as from any featureline or 3D polyline.

It is possible to choose two types of creation of dimension lines: continuous and stepped. The continuous dimensioning type creates dimension lines as well as the standard Autodesk® AutoCAD® continuous dimension line command. The stepped dimensioning type creates dimension lines one above the other, i.e. without continuing one on other.

The user selects the dimension style and layer to which the dimension lines will be added, which makes the selection and manipulation of the created dimension lines easier. The given screenshots show the sections of the application in which the user selects section views, codes and the way dimension lines are displayed. 

For a large number of codes with the same name, right-clicking in the window where the codes are located will give you the "merge duplicates" option, which will summarize the list into unique names.

Updates and further development of the application are planned, if you have questions, suggestions, criticisms and commendations, please feel free to submit them via our website or directly to the email:

Known Issues

- If it is about long corridors and a large number of dimension lines that need to be created, it is possible that the process will take a little longer, up to 5 minutes.

- If there is an interruption in the corridor at the sample line location and no codes have been created, the application will not be able to create a dimension line.

- If the distance to be measured is less than 0.01 m or 0.01 ft, the application will not create a dimension line.
