Cannot dimension in section elevation views.

The cursor goes weird on the elevation view trying to drag a dimension.

Can you try to use the auto storypole dims and do you have your dims setup to locate framing?

This is what I get using framing deminsion defaults. I'm really not familiar with mm so maybe someone else can look at it.

The plan is Really slow George , at least for me , so you have to drag REALLY slowly or I think I get the craziness you describe.... either Vertically or Horizontally using the Manual Dim. Tool , vertical seems worse...I wasn't sure what Mode you were using from the OP..... and you didn't save a Camera either , so I'm not sure if it a particular Camera you are using...

 

by default you Elevation camera ( Annotation) was Using 1:1000 Scale (numbers were huge) which made it worse .....1:50 Scale was better..... tried smaller too

 

I didn't download all the textures in the Folder , not sure if that is my slowness issue ? or not.....assuming you don't see that it maybe...

*** redownloaded entire Folder but no difference.

really slow in Elevation though other views didn't seem bad , eg 3D overview was okay....

 

Tried a side and back-clipped Elevation to one building and it was a (very) little better...

 

you and I have the same VideoCard so I don't think it is that....

That's about it for me too.... I've not seen this issue before though with Dims , so slow to populate....

Thanks for looking at the model.

I don't understand I have a good video card, I find it very slow in elevation.

We have sent the model to CA and they don't see any issues with it.

Appart from Perry we all find it slow and sluggish in elevation.

      I am using CAX6 and am trying to get the exterior dimensions of a residential structure to reach to the extent just under the siding. From inside to outside, the exterior wall should have 1/2" wallboard, 2x6 stud walls, 1/2" OSB, 2" rigid insulation, and then siding for which I've allowed 1/2". All of the wall components will sit on the platform except for the siding, which should cover the rim joists.
       
      I believe I have the correct dialog box and selections to do it (or maybe not …. see attached screen shot). However, after I make the selections in the Wall Type Definitions dialog box and back out of the dialog boxes leading there, I find that the cross section is incorrect, and the outside of the siding is flush with the platform. If I return to the Wall Type Definitions dialog box to find out why, I find that my selections have not been saved.
       
      I'm careful to make sure that I back out of each dialog box correctly (Clicking OK, OK, Done, etc.) but the changes I make are not saved.
       
      There's probably something I need to select or conditions I have to meet, but darned if I can figure them out after hours of messing with it.
       
      Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?  Thanks!

      I have a railing that is currently being dimensioned to from the outside of the panel. I would like to transition that dimension to either the center of the post or the outside of the post. However, I am unable to manipulate the extension line itself to snap to the corner of the post.

      The wall must be center line. The problem is CA calculate outer side of the room. ( 9.92 m2 )
      How do i get a calculation by center line. ( 9 m2 )

      Hello, when I doing the auto interior dimension, why am i getting exterior dimensions as well?

      When having multiple walls joining each other is the a way to align the distance off one room corner to another by dimension instead of dragging which is more difficult and time consuming and not as presise . I tried to alter offset of each room by clicking a wall and changing the dimension and it resizes the room
      Thx
