dimensioning

Recommended Posts

I'm a new user so I apologize in advance.  Can the exterior dimensions be setup so if I have a brick exterior house the auto dimensions will dimension to the brick and not the framing so I can keep modular dimensions related to brick sizes?  Also if I know I want the dimension for the X and Y axis to be 4'-4" how do I draw the wall to get that? I started layout out the house with the general shape as suggested and then wanted to shift walls using the dimensions but the angled walls became a problem for me.

"Edit - Default Settings - Dimensions - Locate Objects - set to "Surfaces", I commonly use that setting when doing remodeling plans since field measurements are from "Surfaces" as well.

Thx. I am doing an as-built of my home using the original blueprints to get comfortable with this software.  The house is all brick and there are a few bays that have walls at 45 degrees and the X and Y dimensions are known but I'm not sure what dimensions tool I can use to get the angled wall length to work out.  Thoughts?
