Almost everything gets modeled in 3d these days. Associative Dimensioning is only possible with 2d geometry in Vectorworks. Is wish it was possible on 3d geometry as well. The following tools should be able to recognize 3d geometry in models and work associative on sheet layers and design layers: - Unconstrained Linear Dimensioning - Constrained Linear Dimensioning - Dual Dimensioning - Radial Dimensioning - Marking Object Centers - Angular Dimensioning - Arc Length Dimensioning Vectorworks should be able to recognize radial dimensions and curves on shelled nurbs surfaces and perfect round extruded polygons. Attached I have a file I wish VW could dimension associative and would be able to recognize al the different dimensions. Pleas pitch in for enhancements on this wish. Associative Dimensioning.vwx
I'm having problems with the DIM OFF value not being honored for radial dimensioning. I have tested it in a new/clean file. I am not able to grab the dimension value and move it anywhere other than completely outside of the dimension. Inside the dimension, it defaults to being centered along the radial dimension line. When I input a value (either +X or -X in the DIM OFF field of the OIP) the value is accepted but ignored. Any suggestions?
