Dimensioning in 3-d

Recommended Posts

Can someone help me figure out how to dimension in a perspective view of a 3-d object. For instance, If I were to create a cube, and set it into a viewport at at 3/4 view, whenever I try to pull dimensions from corner to corner, all I get is the distance as it appears, not the ACTUAL distance between the points. Is it possible to have dimensions in such a view? Any help is appreciated!

I think bhagood is encountering the problem with using VW dimensioning, which are 2D objects, in a 3D environment. This has been discussed on another thread, I will try to find it.
