Dimension To Center Of Block Edge?

Recommended Posts

Ok How can I EASILY create dimension to the center of the block?

Do not like using Point to Point because I can not easily edit the locations of the point without moving the point & then the adjacent point, next dimension.

I wanted a dimension something like MEASURE or END TO END creates.

Attached is how I want it to look.

 

Thanks

Try using the midpoint or center snaps. Maybe that will help.

I did not have a problem with getting those dimensions on your plan with End to End. The initial snap of the dimension line goes to the edge and then I need to adjust the dimension to the center. Small hassle to move them but not very time consuming.

 

Make sure this snap is turned on.

OK figured it out using END TO END with midpoint snaps

Draw only the first dimension & then use the diamond grip to drag another dimension to the next block.

Before i was trying to create the entire dimension string all at once.

 

Thanks

Center Line Dim with Center snap still snaps to the sides of the blocks.

Maybe I did not do it correctly? Do you have to do one at a time with this one too?

 

The other dim is the one I created using End to End with Mid snaps.

By doing this, you're essentially just bi-passing the automated locates.  I don't think you can get what you want automatically.  Problem is that there is no "center" snap settings for CAD in the Locate Objects tab.
