3d dimensioning

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I can not 3d dimensioning in isometric view in VW 2011.At the same time dimensions are changing location when I change view

:confused:

Is it (3d dim.) plug-in?

How can I do 3d dimensioning as in the picture?

You need to create the dimensions in a Front (or Side) View, or in Top/Plan. Then switch back to Isometric and adjust the position(s) to suit the view.

This will only work in a Design Layer, not in a Viewport... You can make a Viewport of the Isometric View after creating the dimensions...

Not a perfect system, but more or less workable if you have the patience.

Go to an isometric view.

Rotate and eventually move the 3D Working Plane (snapping to your object).

Create the dimension(s).

Another thing worth checking is whether the document window shows the Screen Plane or Layer Plane (or Working Plane) for creating objects. It goes to say that Layer Plane and Working Plane modes should be used.

Nemetschek must find a solution to this,ok I did as you said it but not the easiest methods.

-dimensions do no appear in Open GL or other rendering modes

-dimensions are lost save as jpeg or other format

-In 3D objects does not appear some of the dimensions save as Create Symbol

or I can't... :confused:

OpenGL Viewport on a Sheet Layer.

Note I did have to increase the dpi of the Sheet Layer to make the text clear. That is necessary because a Viewport is scaled information and the text image from the Design Layer is being scaled as well.
