LevelSet measures the vertical distance from an origin called Base point to a feature, such as a slab and draws level marker with measured value.
There are some similarities between LevelSet and Autodesk® AutoCAD® Ordinate dimension. The main differences are:
- LevelSet can contain more than one level.
- LevelSet base point can be defined as any positive or negative number. Ordinate dimension origin point is always 0.00 (zero).
- LevelSet level can be shown with the custom defined symbol.
Note:LevelSet is anonymous block (block name begins with *U). It holds also not displayed attribute with tag “LevelSet”. You can set name for each LevelSet by using this attribute.
