Vertical Curve Dimension Line

104 Views, 2 Replies
03-22-2005 12:48 PM
While editing the label styles for my vertical curves (all 4 of them) I'm unable to get arrowheads to appear on the ends of the dimension line, which dimensions the curve length. While I understand this isn't a true dimension, can someone help me make it appear as a dimension with the arrowheads at the curve start and end? Also, is there a way to embed the dimension text (curve length) in the dimension line as opposed to a "y" offset above or below the line?

Thanks,

Jason

You need to add the arrow heads as block components, and attach them to the dim lines. I believe that the dwt that shipped with the product had decent examples of this technique. -- James Wedding, P.E. Technology Manager & Associate Jones & Boyd, Inc.

Thanks, I did figure it out with your suggestion and searching through enough tutorial drawings.
