Dimensioning

Hello All,

 

I'm still learning ACAD09, so here's my question.  I have a drawing with some intricate dimensions and I'm trying to find the best way to dimension the drawing so the part can be made correctly.  I use basic dimensions 2D modeling and use X-Y coordinates.  But this particular drawing is somewhat difficult for me to dimension.  Any tips/sites/samples will be greatly appreciated. I have attached the drawing in reference on what I don't thus far.  I'm sure there will be more questions so feel free to ask anything.

 

 

 

Thank You

Ken hi,

 

That because your origin drawing point (x=.000, y=.000) does not placed on autocad (wcs) origin point

all you need is to move all objects from your (x=.000, y=.000) to 0,0,0

 

Cheers,

Moshe

Hello Moshe,

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Can you please give me an example.  I don’t fully understand, sorry.

Don't forget to turn the UCS icon "ON" to be sure it's on Plan (right now it's not)

Hello Patchy,

 

Not quite sure what WCS is can you give me an example or some sort of pic/site/ etc to take a look at this .  I looked at help in ACAD but still don't fully understand, sorry.

 

Regards,

Ken

 

Thank you.

Thank You

I know what it is but I can't explain it as good as these guys.
