Moving Polyline Solids with Dimension Tools

Recommended Posts

I have used a cylinder and made 4x4 post to show where existing posts are in a basement.  I want to move them to exact location they are from the exterior walls.  I am completely perplexed as to how to do this.  I've tried using end to end dimension but when I click the cylinder and hover over the end to end dimension my cursor won't change so I can manually enter the dimension.  Any thoughts anyone?

As Eric has shown, you can dimension to the edge or center (if zoomed in close enough) and you can also use the dimension tool that creates its own dimension points and then center the columns/Posts to those marker points.

Maybe post the plan.  Sounds like you might be doing something wrong or snapping your dimension to the wrong object.  Works fine for me.
