Dimensioning your drawing

The progeCAD® dimensioning tools let you add measurements to a drawing. You can quickly add dimensions by simply pointing to entities. You can also add tolerance symbols to your drawings.

The program's many dimensioning variables let you control the appearance of the dimensions. With dimension styles, you can save dimension variable settings so you can reuse them without having to re-create them.

This chapter explains how to:

  • Create dimensions as linear, angular, diametral, radial, and ordinate.
  • Create leaders and annotations.
  • Edit dimensions.
  • Use dimension styles and variables.
  • Add geometric tolerances.
  • Control dimension tolerance.
  • Control alternate dimension units.
