Dimension Line Extension Offset

2526 Views, 4 Replies

Is there any way to override the dimension line offset value for Individual dimension extension lines?

 

I would like to know if it is possible to do this in Inventor, in the same way that it can be done in AutoCAD with the DIMEXO or DIMFXL Variables.

Hi Paul,

 

I think this is what you mean. See attached pic.

Thanks Quagga, but doesn't that change the style Globally? I would like to know if I can change the Offset on one single extension line only...

As far as I can tell, you are right Paul, that does change it globally. I don't know of a setting that you can just change each extension line individually.
