Dimension defaults


Recommended Posts

How do you set the default exterior Dimension to Centerline? There's an option under locate objects to set it to interior wall Center. I'm trying to Dimension to the center of my exterior footing. Any suggestions

Yeah I tried both of those settings it still did not Dimension to the center exterior wall. I just manually Drew cad lines in and centered them in on the footing and dimensioned to those. If you guys know of a simpler way please let me know

Is there a reason why you want dimensions to the center line of your exterior wall? The reason I'm asking is because I never ran into a situation when that measurement would be relevant to anything in real or in the program.

I think the only way to do what you're asking for with auto dimensions is to create a wall type with 2 main layers of equal sizes and set it to dimension to the exterior of the inside layer.  Maybe consider using Point To Point or Centerline dimensions instead.
