Advanced Dimensioning

A feature that is seldom used in AllyCAD or Civil Designer CAD is the advanced dimensioning.

There are various types of advanced dimensioning:

The dimension must show decimal tolerances above each other.

Enter the following :- 46.7m\+(1 space).5\-(2 spaces).2


The dimension is shown as follows:


The dimension must show the tolerances above each other.

Enter the following :- 50.2m\/ (BackslashForwardslash)50m


The dimension is shown as follows:


The dimension must show the tolerances above and below the dimension line.

Enter the following :- 50m\\ (BackslashBackslash)49.9m


The dimension is shown as follows:


For dimensioning, where you know space will be a problem, but would really like the dimension to site above the line and not justified off to the left or right.

Enter the following : - 10.67m\/ (BackslashForwardslash)


The dimension is shown as follows: (this gives the desired effect of having a line feed, and the dimension not being offset).


The user might also not want the "m" or the dimension unit in the dimension.

Click on the Setting Menu -> Drawing Settings.


Click on the meter button. On the dialog that appears remove the unit symbol.


All dimensions will now not show the unit symbol.
